Mark Your Calendars: 'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Gets a Premiere Date

Don't look so bummed out, Dany—we'll be together again in approximately 3 months, 2 days, 21 hours, and 35 minutes.

HBO announced Thursday that Game of Thrones will return April 12, the same day Silicon Valley and Veep, two shows that don't have dragons, will also premiere. (This is the part where you cancel all your appointments. We'll wait.)

For hardcore GoT fans, the pain of waiting will likely increase steadily until Jan. 23, when would-be Westerosians can view a full-length trailer for the upcoming season on IMAX screens across the country. As for those with slower clicking fingers, these 10 seconds of grainy, leaked footage will have to do.
