HBO announced Thursday that the fifth season of Game of Thrones will premiere on Sunday, April 12 at 9 p.m.
A lot happened at the close of season four: The Battle of Castle Black had just ended, Stannis Baratheon arrived at the Wall, Daenerys Targaryen was no closer to reclaiming her rightful place on the Iron Throne, Tyrion Lannister had put two arrows into his father and Arya Stark had boarded a ship to Braavos.
Comedies Veep and Silicon Valley will both return on April 12 as well, providing some much-needed comic relief after the bloody show.
