Plus, a look at some new faces

HBO released a slew of Game of Thrones photos from the show's upcoming sixth season, and finally confirmed that certain characters are alive.

Just, you know, not that character.

For those who haven't seen the fifth season and are looking to avoid spoilers, consider this your official spoiler warning.

During last season's finale, Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy were seen jumping off the castle wall at Winterfell. Like most finales, the show ended with their statuses unknown, but it's clear in these new photos that they are both very much alive.

Other important takeaways from the photos include that Arya Stark is indeed still blind and poor Myrcella Baratheon is very much dead. Like her older brother Joffrey, she was poisoned and left for dead at the Red Keep.

There are also some unknown characters included in the mix, as well character shots of Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister and a shot of a much older Bran standing beside Max Von Sydow as the Three-Eyed Raven.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 24. It is still unclear as to whether Jon Snow will return with it.
