Lots of excitement surrounding the eighth and final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The pieces are set on the board, and the final part of the story is set to play out. Last season, fans were introduced to the ice dragon, when sadly, Viserion was knocked out of the sky by a spear thrown by the leader of the White Walkers, The Night King.

Does that mean there are other ice creatures that exist in Westeros? Possibly. Yesterday, creator of the novels that the show is based on, George R.R. Martin, took to his Twitter account to post a preview of the Song of Ice and Fire calendar for 2020. Pictured in the post is a sneak peek at the cover art, which depicts an ice spider.

Is it possible we could see ice spiders in the final season of Game of Thrones? In an interview with the New York Times, Martin playfully hinted that it’s a possibility.

“There might be! [Laughs.] I will say nothing about that. Maybe the ice spiders were just a legend!”

Martin does appear to be joking, but who knows right? There are likely all kinds of wonderful surprises in store for fans during Season 8, and maybe one of them are other ice creatures.

What are your thoughts on the inclusion of ice spiders? Let us know in the comments down below!
