April 2015 is a huge month for HBO as the subscription network premieres new seasons of some of their most popular and critically acclaimed shows, like Game of Thrones.
Now that winter shows like Girls, Togetherness and Looking have concluded (with Looking concluding its series altogether), HBO is getting ready to release even more content for April.
Game of Thrones is set to premiere on Sunday, April 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO. The mega-popular series is heading into its fifth season with buzz and acclaim for the show at an all-time high. Each season receives greater ratings than the previous one, and viewership is expected to go up even more for season 5. It is currently HBO's highest rated show.
Silicon Valley will be premiering right after Game of Thrones at 10 p.m. on Sunday, April 12. The show is returning for its second season after having a relatively well watched debut season. The comedy received Emmy nominations for its first season, including nods for Best Comedy Series, Writing and Directing.
Veep will return for its fourth season at 10:30 p.m. after Silicon Valley. The political comedy is also an Emmy magnate with nominations in Best Comedy Series for its first three seasons in addition to three consecutive wins for star Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Supporting actor Tony Hale also received an Emmy win for season 2.
At the end of the month, HBO is premiering the miniseries The Casual Vacancy, based on the J.K. Rowling novel of the same name. The miniseries begins Wednesday, April 29 at 8 p.m. and concludes on Thursday, April 30 at 9 p.m.
Also in April, HBO is debuting several movies that were released in 2014. These include Jersey Boys on Saturday, April 4, X-Men: Days of Future Past on Saturday, April 11, Let's Be Cops on Saturday, April 18 and Godzilla on Tuesday, April 21.
