The much awaited season 6 of HBO’s superhit fantasy drama Game of Thrones will premier on April 24, 2016. The channel announced the premier dates on Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, reported Variety.

While no details regarding the plot for the upcoming episodes of the fantasy series are revealed, a teaser released last year suggests that it will address the season five cliffhanger that left fans speculating whether Kit Harington’s Jon Snow was alive.
