The Lord Commander appears on season six’s first promotional image with blood running down his face. Snow appeared to be dead in season five’s finale after being betrayed and stabbed by members of the Night’s Watch.
Harington, however, has been spotted on the show’s Ireland set in full costume multiple times over the past few months.
HBO president Michael Lombardo said in July at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that “dead is dead is dead. He be dead” about the fan favorite, but that hasn’t stopped viewers from speculating about a Jon Snow resurrection.
Season six premieres in April 2016.
