With HBO keeping Season 6 of Game Of Thrones on total lockdown, the upcoming season is the most mysterious one yet.
But according to Emmy-winning showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss, the highly-anticipated season is "the best one" they've ever done!
Speaking to EW, the writer-producers said they were excited for "the whole season" after watching near-final cuts of all 10 episodes!

"Dan and I talk about this a lot. This is not us trying to hype it. Usually there's an episode or two we're kind of nervous about, that didn't turn out as well as we hoped."
Hmmm… we think we know the types episodes he's talking about…
But Benioff reveals thanks to fantastic scripts, directors, and cinematography, they didn't have much to worry about this time! He continued:
"This season there is not a weak episode. We had great directors who knew what they were doing, paired with excellent [directors of photography]. We thought at the script stage it might be our strongest season. Then the episodes came in better than we hoped. We're always reluctant to say it's ‘the best season yet' because so much of that is in the eyes of the beholder. And Dan and I are so close to it that it's impossible to be unbiased. But that's my sense – watching them all together now, this is the best one we've done. It's also the one I'm proudest of, because it was the hardest."
It's hard to think that anything could top the epic-ness of Season 5, but how can we argue such confident words coming from the people who make the show!?
Are YOU getting your hopes up that Season 6 of GoT will be the best one yet?
