Game of Thrones Season 6 Premiere Date Revealed

Winter is coming… and so are new episodes

We finally know when Game of Thrones will be returning to screens in the US and the UK.

Season six of the immensely popular fantasy series hits US screens on HBO on Sunday, April 24 and returns to the UK on Monday, April 25 on Sky Atlantic.

In the US, Game of Thrones is scheduled to premiere alongside comedies Veep and Silicon Valley on HBO on April 24.

The premiere date finally confirms when fans will learn the fate of the betrayed hero Jon Snow, who was left for dead by his own Night's Watch in the season five finale.

HBO's promotional material has played with fans' expectations in both Jon Snow-heavy and totally-Jon Snow-free teasers debuting in recent weeks.

Season six also marks the debuts of Richard E. Grant, Ian McShane, Essie Davis, Pilou Asbæk and Freddie Stroma in the main cast.

News of the show's return comes days after book series author George RR Martin said his next novel The Winds of Winter will not be out before the premiere.

This means that by the end of season six, Game of Thrones will conceivably be well ahead of Martin's published text.
