'Game of Thrones' season 6 will premiere on...


The new season will air starting April 24, 2016 at 9 p.m. 
HBO made the announcement Thursday at its winter press tour for the Television Critics Association.


HBO also announced its comedies "Silicon Valley" and "Veep" will also return 4/24 at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., respectively.
Fans anxiously await the new season because it will be the first big time the show will really head into new territory.
Season five's end caught up with George R.R. Martin's book series, and the author has said his next book, "The Winds of Winter" will not be completed and published before season six premieres.
