Commoners, rejoice! HBO has announced that season 4 of Game of Thrones will be returning on April 6, 2014.
We’ve all waited nearly a year to see how things will progress after the twisty ending of season 3, and there are reports that season 4 will take quite a detour from the book’s plot. While season 4 is technically covering the second half of the third book, fans are also speculating there isn’t enough source material to span an entire season… so what’s going to be added?
Regardless of how you feel about the series’ treatment in the realm of TV, the Internet is going to be an absolute hotbed of GoT watchers from now until April 6th. In fact, if you haven’t caught up on the show and somehow missed spoilers about season 3′s gruesome end (that’s not a spoiler, I swear), now would be a good time to hop on that.
What’s also scary is how fast the TV show seems to be moving while George R. R. Martin’s still dragging his heels on the last 2 books. I guess you don’t earn the nickname the Great Bearded Glacier by being speedy. Or lean shaven, at that.
