Not long after the announcement that the last two episodes of season four of the HBO series Game of Thrones would be making their way to IMAX, HBO has today announced the return date for the critically acclaimed series! The fifth season of [Game of Thrones](movie:817617) will be making its way to HBO owners on April 12th!
The news comes from HBO themselves during a their TCA session. As a fan of Game of Thrones, I can honestly say that I'm extremely excited to see the beautiful world of Westeros again! Though, I am pretty wary, what with the news that the show is cutting out elements from the books and pushing storylines aside for other seasons (including Bran and Theon's, both of which I was EXTREMELY invested in last season!).
Regardless, the season should be a great one! We'll be seeing familiar characters like Bronn, Brienne and the popular Tyrion and Daenerys cross paths at some point!
HBO also announced at their TCA, that the fourth season of their popular comedy Veep and the second season of their other popular comedy Silicon Valley would also be released on April 12th. They also announced that their documentary on Edward Snowden, titled [Citizenfour](movie:2341130), would premiere on February 23rd.
Are you excited for the return of Game of Thrones and these other great shows?
