Brace yourself for brutality, violence and scenes of a sexual nature on Monday 7 April when George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones returns to our TV screens.
As usual, the show is airing in America first, but we won’t have to avoid #spoilers from our fantasy-loving cousins across the pond. The fourth series of hit HBO drama Game of Thrones is set to air in the UK just one day after the much-anticipated series premieres in the US.
Series four is expected to pick up from the end of series three, which saw the aftermath of the infamous Red Wedding.
That shocking episode forced us to say goodbye to a lot of our favourite faces (and we’re not sure we’ve quite recovered yet, to be honest… ) but thankfully plenty of the cast, such as Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Jack Gleeson, will be returning. Series four will also see the arrival of new stars, including Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss.
Game of Thrones series four starts on Monday 7 April at 9:00pm on Sky Atlantic.
