‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Premiere Date Announced


The Game of Thrones season 6 premiere date has been announced! This means that the highly debated question of Jon Snow still being alive will soon be answered!

Game of Thrones returns on Sunday, April 24 at 9pm ET on HBO, and this season of the series will surpass the books. George R.R. Martin revealed on January 2 the he was not yet finished with The Winds of Winter.

Martin also addressed the question of the series and the books taking two different directions. “Maybe. Yes and no. Look, I never thought the series could possibly catch up with the books, but it has. The show moved faster than I anticipated and I moved more slowly.” Martin wrote. “There were other factors too, but that was the main one. Given where we are, inevitably, there will be certain plot twists and reveals in season six of Game of Thrones that have not yet happened in the books. For years my readers have been ahead of the viewers. This year, for some things, the reverse will be true. How you want to handle that… hey, that’s up to you.”

Game of Thrones Season 6 Premiere Date Announced

Will Jon Snow be apart of Season 6? The above teaser, along with the Game of Thrones season 6 poster, has us convinced that his castmates may have lied to us.

During Maisie Williams’s red carpet interviews for the Emmys last year, Jon Snow came up. “No. He’s dead. Sorry.” Williams told TV Line.

Kit Harrington has commented on the topic as well saying that Game of Thrones is still apart of his life. “I can’t talk about that. Let’s just say that Game of Thrones will remain a part of my life for a while, I’ll probably be in my thirties when it’s over. One thing’s for sure: the day I’m no longer on Thrones is the day I’ll bury myself in movie projects (laughs).” Harrington said.

Silicon Valley season 3 will also premiere on April 24, following Game of Thrones at 10pm ET with Veep season 5 airing directly following at 10:30 ET.

Are you excited for the return of Game of Thrones? Let us know your theories about season 6 below! (Even if Jon Snow is dead…. we think he could still be a very large part of the upcoming season).
