HBO has announced that the fourth season of Game of Thrones is set to premiere on April 6th! The first trailer for the epic fantasy series will actually air this Sunday at 8:58 p.m. ET right before True Detective starts. But you can expect it to be released online sooner, so stay tuned for that!
HBO also said it will air Damon Lindelof's fantasy drama The Leftovers in the summer. That series is based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, and Justin Theroux leads the ensemble cast. The pilot for the series was directed by Peter Berg, and to read more about the series click here!
The network then revealed that the fifth season of Boardwalk Empire will be its last. It seemed like that show was going to come to an end soon. It's been such a great series, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they end it and seeing what happens to the characters. Creator Terence Winter had this to say in a statement,
We’re thrilled to get the go-ahead for a fifth season of Boardwalk Empire. After much discussion with my creative team and HBO, we’ve decided to wrap up the series after such a great run and look forward to bringing it to a powerful and exciting conclusion.
HBO is always producing good quality shows, and I'm very excited to see the next chapters of Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, and the start of The Leftovers.
