Games of Thrones‘ nearly year long break gave me the chance to do something…finish the book series so far. As such, I’m pretty damn excited to see it now come to life via the incredibly well done series. Having seen how the other books were translated to the show, I’m very eager to see how this season attempts to tackle the next pair of books. Feast for Crows and Dance With Dragons are books that take place simultaneously and cover a LOT of ground between the South and the North. The show broke up the third book into two different seasons, so I hope they don’t try to cram in too much this time around. Guess we’ll find out when season five debuts on April 12th!
HBO has confirmed that the new seasons of GAME OF THRONES, SILICON VALLEY and VEEP will debut back-to-back on SUNDAY, APRIL 12, starting at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT).

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.
