We finally have a start date for 'Game of Thrones' season six. The epic fantasy series will return to Sky Atlantic on April 25th, one day after it's shown on HBO in the US.

There's no word on whether Sky will simulcast the first episode in the early hours of the morning, as it has done with previous series. Last year, Sky didn't announce it would until much closer to the broadcast date, so it could do the same this year.

For those who'd rather not stay up late, it showed the same episode at 9pm too.

Series six will reveal what exactly happened to Jon Snow. He appeared to be killed-off in the last series, but HBO's promotional material has hinted that he's still alive.

Series six will see Richard E Grant, Ian McShane, Essie Davis, Pilou Asbaek and Freddie Stroma all make their debuts.

Author George RR Martin recently revealed his next book in the 'A Song of Fire and Ice' novels on which the series is based will be delayed.

That means series six will overtake the novels, which will be the first time that's happened.

In the US, 'Game of Thrones' will return alongside much-loved comedies 'Veep' and 'Silicon Valley'. Both series should come to Sky Atlantic later.
