HEY! There might be some spoilers in here! Still reading? You've been warned.

"Game of Thrones" season 5 casting announcements have been made, and there is some major information to be taken from the reveal. Nine new GoT cast members will join "Game of Thrones" as it moves its operation to Dorne, one of the seven kingdoms located far to the south of the realm. Much of season 5 will focus on the slain Prince Oberyn's family and the forward-thinking kingdom where a woman may or may not (probably not, if the casting announcements are to be believed) be in line to rule. 

The lack of a casting notice for Arianne Martell, who would be the heir to Dorne, has led many to speculate that the show will go in a very different direction from the books, though she's not the only character book readers will be sad to see omitted from the series. Lady Stoneheart, it appears, truly WILL NOT return from the dead. Other fan favorites like the Sand Snakes (Oberyn Martell's bastard daughters) WILL appear, as will these other characters on the list of new members of the GoT cast.
