At last: Game of Thrones season 4 has an official premiere date.
The fantasy epic returns to HBO on Sunday, April 6.
But that’s not all. HBO is also readying the release of Thrones fourth season trailer. The full trailer will be out Sunday night right before the premiere of hot new drama True Detective, but you might not have to wait that long to see at least some of it. That sounds cryptic, but we’ll have details this weekend. The trailer is described as the “first extended look at the new season and features new characters and episodic footage” (and we hear it’s amazing).
Thrones will be paired with the third-season return of Veep starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and filmmaker Mike Judge’s buzzworthy new ensemble comedy series Silicon Valley.
More HBO premiere dates, some more specific than others:
— Ryan Murphy’s film The Normal Heart, about the AIDS crisis in the 1980s and starring Matt Bomer, Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons and Julia Roberts, will debut in May.
— Showrunner Damon Lindelof’s Rapture thriller The Leftovers will debut this summer.
— Short-order comedy Doll & Em starring Emily Mortimer debuts March 19.
