Two Game of Thrones Regulars Not Returning for Season Five (SPOILERS)
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 09.03.2014
A storyline is being put aside for now…
Speaking to Yahoo!, actor Kristian Nairn (Hodor on HBO's Game of Thrones), revealed that there are no plans for Hodor or Bran Stark to appear on season five of the show.
Nain stated, "We have a season off and we have a year's hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the book. So, I get my year off now to do [my DJ show] Rave of Thrones and gallivant all over the world."
At the end of season four, Bran & co. had an encounter with the manifestation of the three-eyed raven. Jojen was lost in the fray. However, this does not mean we have seen the last of the characters forever. TVLine.com reports that the storyline has been apparently put on the shelf for the time being. Season five will introduce the Westeros region of Dorne and some new characters played by Jonathan Pryce and Alexander Siddig.
Game of Thrones season five will premiere on HBO in 2015.
