'The Winds of Winter' Release Date, News & Update: George RR Martin Confirms Jon Snow And Ned's Relationship; 'Game Of Thrones' Season 7 Delayed

The sixth book of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series is the most wanted book today. According to reports, some of the big reveals in "The Winds of Winter" is already out. Read more to know the details.

'The Winds of Winter' To Reveal Jon Snow's Real Parents

The fifth book of the "ASOIAF" series ended with Jon Snow being stabbed to death after his men betrayed him. This scene created more hype for "The Winds of Winter." Everyone wants to know if the crow-favorite character is still alive in the next book.

However, this question has been answered even before "TWOW" arrived. "Game of Thrones" Season 6 confirmed Jon Snow's resurrection. Aside from Snow's fate, Parent Herald previously reported that fans would finally learn Jon Snow's real parents in "The Winds of Winter."

"I'll give you a little hint: Jon's parents names rhyme with "Schmobert Schmaratheon" and "Schmatelyn Schmark," the "The Winds of Winter" author teases. The said post has been deleted but you can find a screenshot of George R Matin's post here.

Jon Snow was introduced as Ned's bastard son. However, "ASOIAF" and "GOT" fans know that Ned is not Snow's real father and George RR Martin has confirmed this in an interview years ago.

GRRM Confirms That Ned Is Not Jon Snow's Dad

Fourteen years ago, the "The Winds of Winter" scribe teased how Jon Snow, Daenerys and Tyrion got their names. "Mothers can name a child before birth, or during, or after, even while they are dying. Dany was most like named by her mother, Tyrion by his father, Jon by Ned," Martin said per Inquisitr.

If Ned was Jon Snow's father, Martin could have referred to him as such, similar to Tyrion's. However, mentioning Ned's name only confirms that he was not Jon Snow's real dad. There are theories that Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark are Snow's real parents but the R+L=J theory does not follow Martin's hint. Let's see if "The Winds of Winter" will confirm Martin's teaser of the R+L=J theory.

'Game Of Thrones' Season 7 Delayed

Meanwhile, 964Eagle reported that "Game of Thrones" Season 7 would be delayed. The "GoT" showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirmed this.

"We don't have an air date yet, but this year will probably be a little bit later," Benioff and Weiss told the UFC Unfiltered podcast. "We're starting a bit later because you know at the end of this season winter is here and that means sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes anymore."

"Game of Thrones" Season 7 will return in 2017. Meanwhile, there are rumors that "The Winds of Winter" is already done and will be available at the end of the year.
