Fans of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones have been wondering when the new season of the show will come back and restore all the fun and blood we’ve shared over the first three seasons of the show. While no official premiere date had been mentioned before by HBO, the network has finally unveiled when the show will return to the air.
HBO has announced that April 6, 2014 will be the official premiere date for the fourth season of Game of Thrones.
As we all expected, the premiere of HBO’s new series True Detective has spurred a lot of attention for Game of Thrones as the January 12th premiere of that show will be tied to new footage being shown for the fourth season of Game of Thrones.
We haven’t yet seen an official trailer, but it sounds like the first look at the new season will be unveiled then. For now, we have the eight seconds of footage from HBO’s year end trailer looking ahead to 2014, and the slew of behind-the-scenes footage that has leaked out of the production.
Seaosn four will pick right up where the third season ended, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, is going to be the conclusion of George R.R. Martin’s book A Storm of Swords.
88 days lie between now and the premiere of Game of Thrones and we can’t hardly wait for April 6, 2014 to get here.
