Game of Thrones season 6 is premiering next April. HBO shared the new season’s first promotional image on Twitter this morning, and it features the bloody visage of a character that currently seems to be hovering somewhere between alive and dead: Jon Snow, former Stark bastard and Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.

When we last saw Snow, he was being lured into a trap by disillusioned members of the Night’s Watch and stabbed to death in a display of brutal and shocking mutiny.

Of course, there’s been a ton of speculation about his true status since season five’s finale aired last June; death doesn’t have to mean much on a show that’s featured several resurrections.

The photo announcement is the first official acknowledgement of Jon Snow in season six and officially begins the countdown to the biggest show on television. Woohoo! We can’t wait!

Cheers to Squareeyed for the heads up
