We’ve been waiting eagerly for the next Season of GOT however, if sources are to be believed, the wait will be a little longer. This means, instead of GOT premiering in April 2016, it would, in all probability be May 2016.
The reason behind this, as HBO announced earlier, was that Vinyl would be premiering on 14th February followed by Girls and Togetherness on 21st February. In all probability, Vinyl would be winding up on 10th April. This means that GOT could premiere on 17th April at the earliest. However, with chances of HBO abjuring the 17th April opportunity and leaving out premiering on 24th April, which happens to be an Easter Sunday, for obvious reasons, chances are high that the show may air on 1st May.
