Carnage and bloodshed will once again fill the screens when "Game of Thrones" returns to HBO April 24 with Season 6 and the premiere episode will finally answer the mystery of Jon Snow's death.

The Season 5 finale saw Jon Snow in a Julius Caeser moment when he was stabbed by his Night's Watch comrades. The last we saw of the character was him lying in a pool of blood and fans were led to believe that the character would be no more. Kit Harington and the showrunners too revealed that Jon Snow was no more, but fans have held on to the hope that the Red Priestess Melisandre would somehow revive the dead Lord Commander.

In the previous seasons of "Game of Thrones," fans used George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series as a guide to find out what's in store for the characters. But this time around, Martin's books won't be too helpful as the show has already caught up with the last published book. This has left fans clueless about the deaths in season 6. But it's guaranteed that we'll lose an important character in Season 6.

Previewing the upcoming instalment, actor Liam Cunningham told The Hollywood Reporter that Season 6 has a lot of wonderful characters.

"It was full of intrigue, full of newness, and filled with wonderful characters," Cunnigham said. "We have quite a few new people on board this year, and as usual, there's carnage with characters going down. There are parts of it that are business as usual, and I mean that in the very best sense. Then there are parts that are stylistically very new."

Cunnigham also spoke about the end of the series, saying it won't be long before the show wound up.

"This year, we pushed the limit even more, because we know it's going to come to an end soon. It has to. You can't keep up this level of quality, because of the demands and everything — your personal life, your time, all of that. This show is bigger than the lot of us, the sum of its parts. To do justice to the finish of this story is very important, that we can walk away with our heads held high, that we can do no more, that we did as much as we could."
