Unfortunately, “Game of Thrones” fans will have to say goodbye to their favorite characters. Martin said: none of the original cast will return in the new show, which pre-dated their world by thousands of years.

“The series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden age of the Heroes in his darkest hour, HBO told The New York Times in a statement. “And one thing is for sure: the horrific secrets of the westeros, the history of the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of the legend … it is not the story we think we know.”
