Game of Thrones

Story by Jack Foley

THE fourth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones will commence in the UK on Monday, April 7, 2014 at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.

As ever, the show will air less than 24 hours after it receives its premiere in the US to keep as up-to-date with plot twists and revelations as possible.

The keenly-anticipated fourth season welcomes yet more new cast members, including Mark Gatiss, Joel Fry, Roger Ashton-Griffiths, Indira Varma and Pedro Pascal, who will play Prince Oberyn Martell – aka The Red Viper.

Guest directors include Michelle MacLaren (of Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead fame), Alex Graves (The Newsroom, Fringe) and Neil Marshall, who has previously directed season 2’s breathtaking Battle of Blackwater episode.

The book’s author, George RR Martin will also return to write an episode.
