It's a fair to say that pretty much everyone is familiar with 'Game of Thrones' at this point. It's had years of dominating the Emmy Awards ceremonies and has fired both the characters, stars and original author into being household names. So it stands to reason that faced with a nine-month wait between seasons, people are desperate to get back to Westeros as soon as possible. Luckily, a featurette is on its way to keep us going.

According to 'Game of Thrones' fansite,, HBO has scheduled 'Game of Thrones: A Day In The Life' to be released on 8th February, appearing on both HBO's website and YouTube channel. But before people have a chance to see it, a little speculation is in order. Last year, preceding the fourth series, HBO released 'Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing' - half an hour of part recap, part teaser. It seems likely that something similar is inbound.

In the four season that have already aired, an awful lot has happened. The final episode of season four saw the main cast scattered and leaving the places they had resided since the beginning, so it would make sense to remind viewers who is where across the lands of Westeros and Essos. But also, after the introduction of the fantastic Oberyn Martell last year, the story is preparing to showcase his homeland of Dorne. In order to hit the ground running, HBO want to give viewers a brief rundown of the exotic lands of Dorne.

The title suggests that the featurette will take us through a day in the life on set but, again, the majority of the production photographs and viral teasers have been for Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in Dorne, so it is likely that these will be the scenes we shall be shown. Especially as this plotline has sparked controversy from readers of the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' book series, as it poses a divergence from the original plotline of the books.
