We knew Game of Thrones was coming back to HBO for its sixth season in April, but the network's finally announced the exact date everyone's favorite fantasy returns to TV. Season six is going to premiere on April 24, and it'll constitute the first half of a two-hour, three-show premiere block alongside Silicon Valley and Veep.

You only have to wait another 108 days to discover Jon Snow's fate, reunite with Bran Stark, and play along with the Game of Game of Thrones — start your timers!
