Here are some of the new characters coming to Game Of Thrones next season

With the admonition that it may spoil things to learn that the next season of Game Of Thrones will introduce a whole bunch of new characters, many of whom will participate in plotlines and occasionally speak lines of dialogue, Entertainment Weekly has revealed a list of who will be joining the show next year, prompting viewers who haven't read the books to turn to their significant others and go, "Wait, who is that dude again? Why is Dragon Lady so mad at him?" They include: Mance Rayder, Daario Naharis, Edmure Tully, Ser Brynden Tully (The Blackfish), Lady Selyse Florent, Shireen Baratheon (Stannis' daughter), Olenna Redwyne (The Queen of Thorns), Beric Dondarrion, Thoros of Myr, Tormund Giantsbane, and Jojen and Meera Reed—though showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss say there will also be "a few others," until no working actor goes unemployed ever more. Anyway, those who have read the books may recognize some of these characters from A Storm Of Swords (the events of which will be stretched across two seasons), thus giving Game Of Thrones experts the rare opportunity to feel superior.
