Just left roundtable interviews with George R.R. Martin and the Game of Thrones producers and there’s still a TCA press tour Thrones panel to come, so we’re going to have plenty of news on the show later today.

But I wanted to get this factoid to you right now: HBO has firmed up its Thrones premiere date. Ready? It’s…

April 17.

(Yes, it’s been April for awhile, but now they have an actual date). A Sunday, naturally.

Will you watch?

UPDATE: George R.R. Martin gives fourth book update, talks HBO series
