No Fooling, Winter Is Coming Back: GAME OF THRONES Returns April 1st; Other HBO Premieres Announced

     January 13, 2012


We knew Game of Thrones would return for its second season in April 2012, but we didn’t know when.  There were 30 possible options!  Now HBO has revealed the April wait will be non-existent (unless you’re counting the hours).  Game of Thrones returns April 1st.  The new season will be 10 episodes long.

HBO also announced other premiers for its fall line-up.  The Lena Dunham comedy Girls arrives on April 15th, Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, premieres on April 22nd.  As for HBO movies, Jay Roach‘s political drama Game Change debuts on March 10th.  The two hour film centers on John McCain‘s 2008 presidential campaign and stars Ed Harris as McCain and Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin.  And while all of this sounds well and good, it’s all about getting back to Westeros.  If you haven’t seen the teaser trailer for season two of Game of Thrones (or you just want to watch it again), hit the jump.
