Game of Thrones Season 6 is coming.

We've known this for a very long time, of course, but now HBO has revealed the exact date on which fans will be taken back to Westeros.

So you better circle your calendar and set your DVR for Sunday, April 24 at 9/8c.

This is when Game of Thrones Season 6 will premiere.

HBO also confirmed during its panel at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour today that the smash hit drama will once again be paired with comedies Veep and Silicon Valley.

The latter‘s third season and the former's fifth season will also debut that night, at 10 p.m. and 10:30 pm, respectively.

Very little is known about Game of Thrones Season 6, although author George R.R. Martin came out this week and said the book on which it is based will not be completed in time for new episodes.

As loyal readers and viewers know, however, the series veered away from Martin's source material pretty heavily over the last couple seasons anyway.

The main question heading into Season 6 is whether Jon Snow is truly dead or not (SPOILER ALERT that we are just assuming: there ain't no way, people!).

One of the only true heroes of the series was seemingly stabbed to death by his colleagues as Castle Black to close out Game of Thrones Season 5.

We also know that Bran Stark, who sat out all of Season 5, will return for Season 6.

What storyline are you most excited about for this spring?
