HBO announced its February premieres today, kicking off Sunday nights with the two-hour premiere of Vinyl on February 14, followed by Girls and Togetherness a week later. Just like with Show Me a Hero, it's likely Vinyl's two-hour premiere will count as the first two episodes of the ten-episode show, meaning all three shows would finish out their seasons together on ... April 24. What does this have to do with Game of Thrones? As HBO only programs two hours of shows on Sunday nights, it means that the sixth season of Game of Thrones likely wouldn't return until May 1 at the earliest. So far, Thrones' premiere dates have ranged from late March to mid-April, with last season beginning on April 12. Technically, that means this off-season is the longest you will have to wait in between GOT seasons (though, of course, it's still not as long as the people of Westeros have to wait between seasons). The struggle. Also, while we're speculating on premiere dates, the domino effect could continue through the year, meaning that a potential third season of True Detective is probably a nonstarter for the summer. That makes sense, considering how much time Nic Pizzolatto might need to recover from the last season.
