Season six of Game Of Thrones begins on April 24, airing at the same time in the UK and US as Sky Atlantic "simulcasts" the show for British viewers. Fans will be able to watch the season premiere at 2am on Monday, April 25 (9PM on April 24 in the US) with a repeat in the UK at 9pm on Monday, April 25.
The first trailer for season six was revealed last year. The trailer followed a teaser poster which showed the blood-stained face of Kit Harington's character Jon Snow, who was apparently left after bleeding to death at the end of season five.
Ever since the season five finale, Game Of Thrones fans have been speculating as to whether the popular character, a mainstay since the show began, is dead or alive.
New cast members for season six include veteran actor Max von Sydow, who has been cast as the Three-eyed Raven, and Withnail And I's Richard E. Grant, who will play the manager of a visiting theatre troupe. Meanwhile, Golden Globe-winning actor Ian McShane has also joined the cast in a currently unknown role.
