Looks like Game of Thrones' Charles Dance may have unintentionally spilled the beans about the as-of-yet-still-unconfirmed fourth season of the hit HBO fantasy series. Plus we’ve got six brand new season three pics to whet your appetites!

But first things first.

While HBO has yet to confirm that season four is a GO (like we ever doubted that it's gonna be), Dance, who plays the über awesome Lord Tywin Lannister on the series, has confirmed indeed that the fourth season is pretty much in the cards.

While promoting the DVD release of season two, Dance said:

“We’re about to start season four aren’t we? This year.
“We get scripts pretty early on, much earlier on than in similar series, usually you get perhaps one episode and you just have to trust that what’s going to come in subsequent episodes is going to be as good as the one you’ve got.
“But in this I think there are six scripts already written, and we will probably be able to see them with more than adequate time to prepare before we start shooting.”

Now that’s truly awesome news and we couldn’t be more thrilled that HBO is definitely moving forward with the fourth season of its hit HBO series.

An official confirmation should (hopefully) follow soon enough.

Plus have six new pics from the upcoming third season to share with you, so have a look below!

Are you excited that season four is moving forward? The third season of Game of Thrones returns on March 31.
