Good news fans of all things Game of Thrones as HBO have announced that the popular TV series will return to US screens 1st April. Not work yet on when we’ll get it in the UK but it shouldn’t be much later than the 1st on Sky Atlantic if the previous season is anything to go by.

The news come from Variety who tell us the second season will be 10 episodes long and I am very excited about it returning.

Here’s the info:

HBO has set April 1 as the date for the 10-episode second-season premiere of ”Game of Thrones.”

Fantasy drama was a huge ratings winner for the pay cabler in its debut last year, as well as a massive profit center for the net since HBO produces the series as well. In addition to be a domestic hit, ”Thrones” drew millions of viewers around the world.
