Every year, HBO releases a video looking back at their programming, and then giving a brief look at what’s to come the following year. Based on the past year, the network can congratulate itself for new series True Detective and Silicon Valley as well as the (arguably overdue) sendoffs for True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, and The Newsroom. Now it’s time to prepare for the new year with quality returning shows and fresh series, and the year-end video provides brief glimpses of Game of Thrones: Season 5 and the new show Westworld among others. It’s exciting to guess which new series could be the network’s next big hit: Will it be the Duplass Brothers’ Togetherness? The Brink starring Tim Robbins, Jack Black, and Aasif Mandvi? Ballers starring Dwayne Johnson? And when you throw in the original movies and miniseries, it should be an exciting 2015 for HBO.
Hit the jump to take a brief look at Game of Thrones: Season 5 and Westworld.
