Location News for GAMES OF THRONES Season 5

Warning! This is a spoiler alert. This post contains spoilers for Seasons 4 and 5 of Game of Thrones. If you don’t wish to be spoiled, don’t read any further. 

Still weeping for the loss of Prince Oberyn Martell, Game of Thrones fans? Tyrion’s dashing would-be champion may be gone from us, but his legacy lives on… Entertainment Weekly reports that the show’s fifth season will take us to Dorne, the homeland of the Red Viper.

Producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss have told EW that, “There will be Dorne, and we’re excited about it. Who wouldn’t want to hang out in Dorne? They have admirable values and priorities. And have you seen Oberyn’s coat?” The showrunners confirm that the fifth season (of a proposed seven) will draw heavily from books 4 and 5 (A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons) of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.

According to Variety, “Oberyn’s Sand Snakes — his illegitimate daughters Obara, Nymeria and Tyene — brother Prince Doran Martell, youngest son Prince Trystane Martell and personal bodyguard Areo Hotah will be among the new characters populating the hottest region of Westeros.”

    I really want to see Casterly rock

  2. JoeMG323 says:

    What about Arianne Martell? Hope they havent cut her character.

    • Portmanteaubot says:

      The report is based on one casting call, so it’s hardly comprehensive. They may already have someone in mind or even cast.  Or they could be pulling Arianne’s from the pools of potential Sand Snakes.

  3. Nox says:

    The Citadel, Braavos, Volantis and more Iron Islands! Is all hope of the Queensmoot lost?
