The new Game of Thrones poster seems to suggest that we have definitely not seen the last of Jon Snow in the show.
Spoiler alert: Do not continue reading if you aren’t up to date on all the latest Game of Thrones drama.
Season 5 ended with our favorite tousled-haired Night’s Watchman getting a knife straight to the chest in a way that you just don’t come back from.
To crush our souls even more, actor Kit Harington and HBO president Michael Lombardo then both confirmed that Jon Snow isn’t just dead, he’s dead dead.
Harington even went so far as to say, “I’m not coming back next season,” according to E! News.
But that hasn’t stopped fans of the show from hoping and speculating. And now, HBO has just released the first poster for Game of Thrones Season 6, which features a bloody and battered Jon Snow front and center in all his glory. And though his facial expression is pretty bleak, it’s the fact that he’s still able to make facial expressions that has us so excited.

And since Harington was spotted in Spain recently, which is one of Game of Thrones‘ filming locations, it seems like Jon Snow might be dead but definitely not gone.
Get your happy dances ready!
Furthermore, if you’ve read the books, you know that dead doesn’t necessarily mean the end of a character. Though the show has yet to really pursue that mystical avenue of the Game of Thrones‘ world other than to introduce us to Beric Dondarrian, it seems like Season 6 could be the time where we finally come face to face with the magic in Westeros.
Game of Thrones Season 6 premieres in April on HBO.
