It appears that Game of Thrones Season 5 will be primarily adapting the entirety of the fourth and fifth books in the series, A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons.
These two novels take place in roughly the same chronological period but focus on different characters, for example, Jaime and Brienne are in Feast, while Jon and Tyrion are in Dance. Dance extends slightly past Feast, and finishes some of it’s plot threads.
There are still small parts of the third book, A Storm Of Swords, that have yet to be adapted (primarily in Jon’s story) while portions of the fourth book (particularly involving Brienne and Sansa) and fifth book (Bran) have already appeared on the show.
If this was not enough, Game of Thrones Season 5 is breaking i’s no flashbacks rule. A young Cersei Lannister has been cast for a scene important to the queen’s psyche.
For the first time, George R.R. Martin will not be contributing a script to the season, as he wants to focus on finishing the sixth book, The Winds Of Winter.
This season also has a new team of directors. David Nutter, who’s directing the last two episodes of the season, is the only carry over from previous seasons. Michael Slovis, Mark Mylod, Jeremy Podeswa and Miguel Sapochnik have been roped as directors this season.
For countless Game Of Thrones fans, being able to experience the lands of Westeros through their own eyes has seemed as unlikely as all the principal characters making it through a series unscathed. But a virtual reality installation at London’s O2 arena; part of an exhibition of clothing, weaponry and other props from the show – is making the Seven Kingdoms come alive.
The Game Of Thrones Season 5 premieres in the United States on April 12, 2015.
