HBO will air new episodes of Game of Thrones on April 24th. It's a bit later in the month than the show traditionally appears. Makes you wonder if HBO was trying to buy some time for George R.R. Martin to put out the next novel in the Song of Ice and Fire series, but Martin has already confirmed that the show will pass the books this season.
Absent from last season, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) returns with new abilities thanks to his training with The Three-Eyed Crow (Max von Sydow). Will he be the key to saving the Seven Kingdom as Winter appears to have finally arrived?
Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues.
It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all play the 'Game of Thrones.'
An original series based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series.
