Bran Stark (and the lovable Hodor?) to return to Westeros

Bran Stark and his piggyback ride-giver, Hodor, still have a role to play in the future of Westeros and Essos, and the traveling duo are coming back for Season 6 of "Game of Thrones" as expected.

OK, so it wasn't a stretch to think that Bran Stark and Hodor would be coming back to Westeros for Season 6 of HBO's hit fantasy series "Game of Thrones," but now it's official.

Talking with the Irish Examiner, Isaac Hempstead Wright -- who plays Bran Stark in the series -- confirmed that despite being completely absent from Season 5, Bran will be back for Season 6. "I can't say a lot, but I am back this season, and it's going to get particularly interesting with Bran," he said, adding that "[Bran] has some interesting visions."

Of course, since Bran is still paralyzed, that implies his trusty halfwit traveling companion, Hodor, is coming back as well, so expect to hear plenty of "HODOR!" in Season 6. You could even download the Hodor Keyboard or Yo, Hodor app to get ready to celebrate the triumphant return of the character who can speak only a single word.

Hempstead Wright also told the Examiner that he still hasn't seen Season 5 -- the 16-year-old was too busy with exams -- but don't worry about spoiling the series for him. He knows what happened with Jon Snow, but he still holds out hope for a change in outcome. He won't have to wait too long to find out Jon's fate, as "Game of Thrones" Season 6 begins filming later in July.

The rest of us will have to wait until April 2016, when "Game of Thrones" Season 6 is expected to return to our TV screens.
