Seven hells, Bran Stark ("Game of Thrones" Season 6 marks the return of young Bran The Broken, last seen in the Season 4 finale when he met the Three-Eyed Raven (who will now be played by Max von Sydow).

Entertainment Weekly just shared the first look at Bran in Season 6, which premieres in April on HBO:

Look at him! Ned and Catelyn would be so proud. Sniff. The 16-year-old actor now has much shorter hair than we're used to seeing, and EW said he's around six feet tall. (!)

For comparison's sake, here's the Bran of Season 4:

Now they just need to show us how Rickon Stark looks these days. We are expecting to see the youngest Stark and Osha again in Season 6. We haven't seen them since Season 3.

Speaking of Season 3, here's another character last season in that season but spoiled to return in 2016. The actors just wrapped Season 6 a couple of weeks ago, and we're on standby for the first real trailer. So far, we've just seen that Jon Snow-focused teaser and three brief new shots sandwiched into HBO's 2016 preview.

Are you excited to see what's ahead for Bran Stark? We're thinking he'll have some particularly insightful visions this year.
