Game of Thrones season 6 is starting soon, and you certainly don’t want to miss out on all the excitement. But when exactly does the new season begin? What date does it start?
Game of Thrones season six begins in one week, on Sunday, April 24. The new season premieres at 9 p.m. Eastern/8 p.m. Central on HBO. The episode will be called “The Red Woman,” likely referring to Melisandre. You can also watch the premiere on HBO Now and HBO GO.
According to Den of Geek, episodes will then air every Sunday after the premiere through Episode 10 on June 26.

Martin hasn’t finished the latest book in the series, so this is the first time that both TV readers and book readers have no idea what’s going to happen next.
