‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 poster teases a bloody Jon Snow, April premiere.

HBO has released new art for Game of Thrones Season 6 that is good news for Jon Snow fans — and better news for anyone who was worried that new episodes would be kicking off significantly later this year.

HBO released the first teaser art for the upcoming Season 6 of “Game of Thrones” — and the image clearly confirms that the fan favorite character is alive…or at least kicking. The picture of the bloodied leader of the Night’s Watch, played by Kit Harington, comes weeks after the actor was spotted on the show’s Saintfield, Northern Ireland set, during the filming of a massive battle scene. While the show has typically debuted in late March/early April, the network’s scheduling of new shows hinted that Thrones’ start would be delayed; some feared it would even be pushed back until May.

A glaring admission from the image that hit the web Monday is that Snow’s eyes are obscured, which leaves open the possibility that the character is now a white walker or something else from beyond the grave. Meanwhile, the months that have followed the death of Snow have been filled with heaps of speculation about the fate of the character, who is either dead, alive or somewhere in between.

Also, new cast addition Ian McShane dropped a hint two weeks ago that his mysterious character may be the key to all those conspiracy theories circulating the Internet about Snow’s fate. “I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. Season 1, episode 10: According to the directors, they couldn’t get enough prosthetic heads made up for the show and ended up using the spare one’s lying around. Harington has been seen sporting Jon Snow-style hair, and there were reports he was on the set of the show’s sixth season, but even before that, shrewd fans noticed that red priestess Melisandre (Carice van Houten), who practices a faith known for its resurrection abilities, had returned to Castle Black, the scene of Snow’s Julius Caesar-esque assassination.

You’re free to believe what you wish, but let’s just all keep in mind that it’s not common practice for a show to spotlight a dead-and-never-seen-again character in key art for its new season. The promotional art also reveals that the show will premiere in April, which is the month in which all but one season of the series has had their premieres. Season 2, episode 4: In one of his most violent moments, Joffrey finds himself with two prostitutes in his room and the most disgusting thing he can think to do with them, uses them as living targets.
