TCA 2014: HBO's ‘Game Of Thrones’ To Debut April 6

(Update) Pasadena -- HBO will bring back its popular series Game Of Thrones on April 6, the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association tour here.

The fantasy-based drama series will return for its fourth season at 9 p.m., followed by the third season premiere of the Emmy-nominated comedy series Veep starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, network officials said. HBO Sunday will debut a trailer for Game Of Thrones' new season during the premiere of new drama series True Detective.

The network’s Mike Judge-created comedy series Silicon Valley will also debut April 6, followed by the second season of news magazine series Vice, said HBO.

HBO will also say goodbye to Emmy-winning series Boardwalk Empire after its fifth season, which debuts this fall. The prohibition-based series, starring Steve Buscemi as Atlantic City boss Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, received five Emmy Awards this past September, according to network officials.

HBO also announced it has greenlit a fourth season of Girls and will begin filming later this year for a 2015 premiere, said network officials.
