Game of Thrones Season 4 is OFFICIAL! Premiere Date: Spring 2014

By Jacob Klein on Apr 2, 2013 to Game of Thrones

Season-4-Tyrion
LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2013 – HBO has renewed GAME OF THRONES for a fourth season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.
Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, GAME OF THRONES is an epic story of treachery and nobility set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years, and only the lust for power is eternal. The Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning series launched its ten-episode third season Sunday, March 31 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, with other episodes debuting subsequent Sundays at the same time.

Among the early critical praise for the third season, the Hollywood Reporter called GAME OF THRONES “addictive and outstanding,” while Newsday termed the series “superb,” awarding the show an A+. The Chicago Tribune hailed the show as “spellbinding” and the Washington Post described it as “masterful.”  A solid premiere date for the next season is forthcoming.

According to early data, GAME OF THRONES’ season three premiere March 31 on HBO topped the series’ highs, with record viewership for both the 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) airing and gross audience across the three plays. At 9:00 p.m., it averaged 4.4 million viewers, outperforming (+4%) the previous high of 4.2 million viewers from last season’s finale. GAMES OF THRONES improved 13% in comparison to last season’s premiere of 3.9 million viewers. Across the three plays for the night, 6.7 million viewers tuned in, surpassing last season’s debut night of 6.3 million viewers by 7%. Last season, GAME OF THRONES had an average gross audience (HBO linear plays + HBO On Demand/HBO GO + DVR) of 11.6 million viewers.

HBOWatch: Duh!  And we can also confirm that Peter Dinklage WILL be returning (assuming he survives season 3!) contrary to some what some jerks might be saying.  No word on an official premiere date but we’re guessing it will be around the same time it landed on the calendar this year: Early Spring 2014!

But what about a premiere date?  When does it air?!

We’ll post a premiere date as soon as we know when Game of Thrones season 4 will start.  An exact premiere date is based on the last three season’s air times.  We’ll update that schedule page when we have an exact time for the premiere but we can almost guarantee that HBO is planning on airing it along with it’s normal premiere schedule in Spring of next year.

It’s been awhile since I have made a comment here, but I saw this comment on my e-mail about piracy and had to put my 2 cents in so, just wanted to ask has anyone’s subscription rate increased besides mine? My single most reason to subscribe to HBO was to watch TB & GOT but the TB series 7 is scheduled to end this summer so my only reason to continue my scribe is to keep up with my only other television obsession GOT. I adore this program. So far I LOVE the new paring of Tyrion with Sansa, Jaime… Read more »

Piracy or theft if everyone keeps pirating the show and the ratings drop HBO will drop it and then noooo show for anyone. I think Ill just upgrade my tv package and watch it honestly . . .

theft, from random house’s college dictionary; (theft) the act of stealing; the wrongful taking and carrying away of the personal goods or property of another; larceny. something stolen. the taking of something that belongs to another sure sounds like theft to me…

Download XBMC and watch game of thrones on that, forget about torrents.

XBMC is a program… you still have to acquire the video files somewhere. Perhaps you a using a plugin to download them or stream them.

Watchseries.lt will have most shows on their site about 1-2 hours after airing. Stick to videoweed or divxstage.eu for the links.

Katie Wiedeman

go to letmewatchthis.com and search game of thrones, and use the putlocker link. you may have to wait a week after the episode has aired to watch it but it will work

It’ll almost definitely show up here, often new episodes are posted shortly after the episode finishes airing.

HBO ?? What’s that .. oh ya, another money sucking sound. I pay zero and download spectacularly captured HD torrents of this great show instead. Thanks torrent guyz.!

David Strausser
Guest

You know that is theft, right?

Benny
Guest

No, theft is when you steal something and the person owning it loose his property. This is piracy and you cant compare it to theft. HBO doesn’t loose their property and they make more money than anyone could imagine!

Proud of me for stating the fact that morons like you compare piracy with theft? And the fact that HBO making tons of money and doesn’t care about piracy? Go back to bed little girl. you are drunk.

Guest

dear f_cktard, you are deluded to believe piracy is not theft! when dickwads like you carelessly go to piracy sites to view programs, it causes whichever network that owns that program to pass on the cost of that programing to consumers that PAY for the privilege to view it, so that in turn causes the company to raise the price of that programing to decent people who pay for it! SO ASSHOLE, STOP STEALING FROM ME!!!

Dear fucking moron! You dont posses enough IQ to understand the difference between piracy and theft so im not going to bother to try explain this to a fucking minion!

But to get back to your initial statement that piracy is bad and you have to pay for it. Take a fucking look at Seth Macfarlane and Family Guy.

Family Guy is aired for FREE on the Internet (http://www.iwatchfamilyguyonline.com) the same day as the episodes are released.

You both sounded like children.and you both need to grow up…and to group one individual into a group of most hated is exactly what all governments want…it gives them more control….if prejudices are continually made by individuals and or groups they remain divided and are only focused on what dives them not what unites them and what revels who is controlling them….so both of you continue and carry on giving “them” power and control….see how far that has gotten all countries so far….

Nobody cares about piracy. Even HBO has publicly stated their more worried that the torrents are of low quality than the fact it’s theft. But, here’s a simple concept: Create something worth paying for and people will voluntarily pay. You’d never think it based on the lies Hollywood and Wall Street spew, but it works. If you like the show and want to ensure future episodes get made, subscribe (I did).

David Zion
Guest

they need to shorten some of the things in the book. the books are dragging a bit – book 4 esp and a lot of 5. Though they risk running out of material at the pace the books are written.

john whealen
Guest

George has this great ability to fill out all his characters. Who they are, why they do what they do and the motivations. He also has a way to completely shock you by killing off his characters when they seem to be indespensible to the flow of the story. I just hope he has the will and stamina to finish off the story complete. I’ve heard there may be 7 books.

snail
Guest

STICK TO THE BOOKS!!! its was a well written story plz dont change it because you guys suck at story lines …. plz dont pull a walking dead on us … keep it true to the books…

Hannah Shearin
Guest

The 5th book was horribly written. Either George Martin needs to write another book to fix all the loose ends he left, or the filming crew isn’t going to be able to finish the series.

Mossey
Guest

He is writing another book – in fact he’s writing another two. The next, The Winds of Winter, should be out in the next year or so, and the final instalment, A Dream of Spring, will be out in a few years.

Well that only saves me money. I cancelled HBO as soon as True Blood was over and won’t add it back until the season premiere of GoT

Jonathan Mayer
Guest

I have to ask, what I believe, is a simple question. Why the hell would you make your fans wait 14 months between seasons??? If it’s popular, you’d think people would pay to see it more frequently. As it stands now, I cancel HBO when GoT is off the air. There’s nothing worth seeing in my opinion other than that..

Sara Dalrymple
Guest

would you rather have them make sloppily slapped together scenes for the series to be done within say 5 months to appease impatient people like what the writers for Dexter did with their final season? i’d rather have them take their time and write some real good stuff rather than haphazard shit. besides, if the show airs the seasons as fast as you would like, then the TV series would catch up to the book series way before the books are done, then we might wait for two years before a season. would you want that?

Nicole Farrell Remax
Guest

The author hasn’t finished writing the books, so I’d guess that contributes to the longer wait in between seasons… http://www.georgerrmartin.com/

Mossey
Guest

Naa – he has already written 5 books, two of which are so big they had to be split in to two parts. Effectively, what we have seen so far is only 3 parts of 7 that have already been written. It will be another few years to catch up, and by then he will have released the next, and final, two books.

Kelly

I don’t enjoy the wait either, but when you look at the length of the episodes, the costumes and locations, the editing that goes into the episodes etc etc…it’s a lot of work! Good things come to those who wait ;)

True but you have to admit that the wait and length of time pretty much guarantees longer customers…trust me it IS a lot of work, HARD WORK, but as with most everything it is about the MONEY! :-)

Cian Gaffney

It’s a 10 month wait, and the reason is simply because shows don’t just appear out of thin air. A lot of dedicated hard work and production goes into bringing them to the screen.

Beautiful job HBO. I will miss this show and cannot wait to see what you produce next. Very well done on senary, locations, and talent, this is a win, and a series that other series will be mearured against.

Bringer of Death !… Death to Lord Bealish!!! King Joffery should be boiled in his own body fat! Next to his grandfather and mother..i now have mixed thoughts about Jamey Lannister, as dose his handler/companion Brion of the Emerald Isle,…Tyrion Lannnister should be made king! If not of King’s Landing then of another realm,he was born to lead!!!

blixx
Guest

Orkus Orkanus, Bringer of Death! Lord Bealish’s interest is clearly his own, and what can benefit his rise to power and wealth, although his agenda to become a nobleman will never be met, he will always be a nasty peon that runs a brothel. No matter how much charm, education, status, or wealthy he becomes he will always be despicable, a low born individual that the nobles will only tolerate so far.

Yes the show is addictive and I truly enjoy it and the various twists and turns it offers. The dragons and the army of the unsullied should be very interesting as they go forward. I would love to have one of the swords and a suit of armor but I doubt I could afford them. How the King Slayer and the large female companion get out of their current mess works out is another situation to pounder. Otherwise I love it all!

I bought Seasons 1, 2 and 3. All from WalMart. I’ll buy Season 4 when it hits the store shelves too. It’s all worth a marathon second or third watch during the off season and to keep all the actors straight and get you up to speed prior to the release of the next season. I think the DVDs were around.$20

HBO GO they do give you options or smartglass

ShadowDragon

Not for people living outside the United States, though. Torrenting and buying the bluray once available is the only “real” option offered (that is, option where you aren’t a second class citizien).
I wonder when they get around to realize that torrenting is not a response of bad intentions from our side, but a response to bad offers from their side.
Just sell it online as a download format already. It ends up on torrenting sites anyways, if you make it directly available or not. May as well give honest customers a way to pay.
