Award-Winning Game Of Thrones Returns To HBO Canada

Games of Thrones

The award-winning series "Games of Thrones" is back for Season 3 on April 6th on HBO Canada.

Following last season’s Red Wedding massacre, the new season introduces a plethora of compelling storylines that will play out to their inevitable, and bloody, conclusions. With an average audience of over one million viewers, the third season of "Game of Thrones" broke all viewership records for The Movie Network and Movie Central, making it the most-watched series in Canadian pay television history.

In Season 4 of "Game of Thrones," after the Stark and Tully families are besieged, the Lannisters hold on to the Iron Throne but can they survive with new and ongoing threats from the north, south, and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s (Jack Gleeson) wedding to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s (Ciaran Hinds) army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne.

The new season of "Game of Thrones" starts on April 6th at 9pm.
