The moment you've been waiting for since last June has finally arrived. During HBO's panel at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Thursday, the network announced premiere dates for several of its new and returning series. So get out your calendars and red Sharpies, because these are dates you're not going to want to miss.
I'll wait while you realize you don't have a calendar and let you find your iPhone instead...
– Game of Thrones Season 4 will premiere Sunday, April 6 at 9pm! And in related news, the first trailer for the new season will debut this Sunday, January 12, at 8:58pm, right before the series premiere of the new Matthew McConaughey/Woody Harrelson drama True Detective. Make sure to set your DVRs accordingly.
– Following Game of Thrones on April 6 will be the Season 3 premiere of the hilarious Julia Louis-Dreyfus-starring political comedy Veep, at 10pm.
– Still with me? 'Cause we're still on April 6. Rounding out that night will be Silicon Valley, a new comedy series from Mike Judge (Office Space, King of the Hill, Beavis and Butt-Head) about the "modern-day high-tech gold rush where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success." Loosely based on Judge's experience as an engineer in the late '80s, the series stars Thomas Middleditch, TJ Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Christopher Evan Welch, and Amanda Crew. Judging by the trailer shown at TCA, it's very, very funny and not to be missed.
– Now let's flip one calendar page backward, to March. Doll & Em, a six-episode series starring Emily Mortimer (The Newsroom) and Dolly Wells (Bridget Jones's Diary) is a semi-improvised comedy that explores female friendship and what happens when an actress hires her best friend as her assistant. It will premiere with back-to-back episodes on March 19 at 10pm.
– Lastly, Vice—Shane Smith's newsmagazine devoted to covering stories that are often overlooked by mainstream media—will return for Season 2 on Friday, March 11 at 11pm.
