According to the cast of Game of Thrones, the scripts for season seven are finished and are currently being read by the likes of Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner.

However, Jon Snow continues to know nothing, as Kit Harington has yet to read the scripts. Well, at least he hadn’t read them by the time The Hollywood Reporter got to him, the actor admitting as much in a new interview.

“It's important to stress at this point that I haven't had any scripts, so this is all guess work for me,” he told the publication.

The actor is, of course, privy to certain information we mere mortals are not entitled to know, meaning he’s in a better position than anyone to detail how season seven is going to play out.

“I think it's going to get very bleak before if there is a happy ending. If there's any sort of win or heroic moment for Jon and everyone else.

“I think it's going to get very dark before it gets better. I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force. So that's going to be exciting to see. I don't know what it means. I think with the whole ‘winter is finally here’ business, it means everyone is going to have a really bad time.”

Things are going to get dark then. Could they really get any darker? We’ve seen children burnt alive, babies eaten by dogs, and people burnt and skinned alive; how could things possibly get bleaker?

Unfortunately, thanks to Winter not coming in the real world, next season on Game of Thrones has been delayed somewhat, no longer debuting in April, instead later on in Summer 2017.

Meanwhile, casting calls for season seven have been revealed, detailing nine characters who will appear in the future.
