“Game of Thrones” season 4 may still be a little ways away, but we now know for sure when the premiere is going to be: Sunday, April 6 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Let us start with the collective groan that this is a full six days later then when the series premiered last year, and five later than when it did back in 2012. But sooner or later, the show was either going to have to make this jump back, or just continue to premiere earlier and earlier in the year until it reaches the very end.
Luckily, this is still within the sort of frame that we predicted the show would premiere in, and it proves that HBO is really not that interested in changing things up at all. They’ve got some good shows for each season, and this is the one that you use in order to get out of spending every Sunday night out on your drunk cousin’s boat.
One other nice thing about this premiere date? It helps to guarantee further that there are going to be few weeks on HBO with all new episodes. With “Girls” premiering on Sunday with two episodes, it will at least be going until around the middle of March depending on what they decide to do with the ten that follow it and if there are any more that will double up. Out of the shows premiering on Sunday, which include “True Detective” and “Looking,” it is the one that has the longest run. “Game of Thrones” itself will run for ten episodes, and depending on what the show decides to with Memorial Day Weekend, it will run until either June 8 or June 15. The final season of “True Blood” will most likely premiere the following Sunday.
