It’s not a season 8 trailer, just a collection of greatest hits from the previous seven seasons. But we did learn today that the series is set to return in April which is terrific news since some reports had us waiting until July at the earliest.
What we definitely know about the next season: It will only be six episodes long, but each episode might be — probably will be — extra long; the first episode will take place in Winterfell, and Daenerys will make her way to Jon Snow’s childhood home. As for everything else we think can expect from the season, TV Guide has a decent list of educated guesses.
Meanwhile, I’m already planning for the annual post-Christmas Game of Thrones marathon. It hasn’t been announced yet, but it better happen since it’s the best way to recuperate from the holidays.
Carl may no longer be with us (R.I.P. Pudding Pirate), but his comic storylines will live on through other characters according to The Walking Dead‘s Angela Kang.
Oh my God, are all of the Crains SPOILER FOR THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE still in the Red Room? I know the creator of the series said that he toyed with the idea but decided it would be too cruel BUT DID HE ACTUALLY DO IT?
Michelle Obama’s first late night stop to promote her book will be on Jimmy Kimmel’s show, but it doesn’t seem to say when it will happen?
This is a good list of mystery box shows (think Lost, Twin Peaks, Westworld) for you to binge over the Thanksgiving week.
Did you watch You? I did, and I’m not sure how I felt about it. Anyhoodles, don’t read this if you haven’t watched the finale yet. Still not sure how I felt about that finale, guys.
I’m old enough to remember that the reason the White House gave for taking Acosta’s press credentials away was that he assaulted a White House intern. Huh.
Meanwhile, while not honoring our war dead at Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans’ Day yesterday, Trump was tweeting himself into a fight between Comcast and the American Cable Association because he’s still angry at NBC for reasons. It’s confusing, but the link above helps explain what this is all about.

Stan Lee, The man who made Marvel. There are so many amazing celebrity tributes out there for Lee — and you should definitely check them out to see just how beloved he was by the entire industry — the entire world, but my favorites are from other creators who were so inspired by him:

This is how I’ll always see you, @therealstanlee: as our benevolent leader and king, smiling down from your eternal throne on the generations of imaginations you fed and inspired. You were the first creator whose voice I knew before I’d ever actually heard it. You dreamed up some of my favorite modern myths and created characters that instilled in me a moral barometer, teaching me right from wrong and showing me it’s always better to be a hero instead of a villain. Your characters represented us: yes, they had extraordinary, unbelievable abilities, but they were also reflections of a world we knew, where a Spider-Man is really just a boy who wants to help. You showed me how to interact with the audience whenever you stepped onto Stan’s Soapbox to reach out to the readers. You showed me how to advocate for my field beyond the actual art itself whenever you tub thumped for comic books outside of the medium. It was never enough for you to simply make a comic because you were a true salesman at heart. So you not only sold comics, you sold me *on* comics – so much so that I built a life and career around your dreams and ideals. When you did Mallrats with us, you not only made a lifelong fan’s dream come true, you also lent me comic book credibility that I still get to spend today. And whether it was for @comicbookmenamc or @yogahosers, whenever I asked to borrow your heat again, you were always there for me with a smile. Your love story with Joanie and your long, happy marriage always shined as an example of what I wanted for my personal life. I long admired (and emulated) your kindness and patience and sense of humor when dealing with your public. Outside of my parents, you were the one adult who gave me the most useful life skills I still use today. Thank you, Stan, for making me not only the boy I was but also the man I am today. You had great power and you always used it responsibly, fostering billions of dreamers who all know your name – a name written in the stars for all time. You were not just the literary titan of comic books, you were our modern day Mark Twain. I will miss you all my days, my friend and hero. Excelsior forevermore. #KevinSmith #StanLee
