“Game of Thrones” Season 4, Episode 10 will premiere on Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET, and a live stream is available on HBO Go.
Episode 10, titled “The Children,” is the last episode for Season 4. The show will start up again in April 2014.
“Game of Thrones” was picked up for another two seasons, according to reports a few months ago.
The series creator, George R.R. Martin, told The New York Times that he wants more episodes of “Game of Thrones” but due to budget constraints at HBO, that’s not a possibility right now.
“I wish we had more episodes,” he told the Times. “I’d love to have 13 episodes. With 13 episodes, we could include smaller scenes that we had to cut, scenes that make the story deeper and richer.”
He also talked about the iron throne in the show itself.
“The HBO throne has become iconic,” he said. “And well it might. It’s a terrific design, and it has served the show very well. There are replicas and paperweights of it in three different sizes. Everyone knows it. I love it. I have all those replicas right here, sitting on my shelves.”
He added: “It’s not the Iron Throne I see when I’m working on ‘THE WINDS OF WINTER.’ It’s not the Iron Throne I want my readers to see. The way the throne is described in the books … HUGE, hulking, black and twisted, with the steep iron stairs in front, the high seat from which the king looks DOWN on everyone in the court … my throne is a hunched beast looming over the throne room, ugly and assymetric … The HBO throne is none of those things.”
And Jon Snow actor Kit Harrington told E! News that he’s coming back for Season 5.
“Thrones is never ending for me,” he told E! News. “If it’s not airing, I’m filming it. I go off and start filming in late July for ‘Thrones’ season 5 and you’ll have to see where it all ends up. But watch episode 10 [on Sunday], it’s going to be a bit of an impact episode.”
He also talked about the loss of character Ygritte, played by Rose Leslie
“It was emotional and I have worked so intensely with Rose Leslie over the years, that’s it’s very sad to see her go,” he added.
