April Premieres Include ‘Game of Thrones’ and More.

So I have been asked by one of the site’s junkies to write a post about shows returning this month.
I write posts like this but not religiously.

It is April, in April we celebrate April’s fool day, Easter and winter.

Winter you ask? Blame “Game of thrones.” The HBO’s series returns on the 12th. Need something keep you warm until then watch the trailer below.

Another HBO series debuts this month. “Veep” returns on the 12th, with Selma as President of United States of America. I can’t wait for this term’s crazy shenanigans.

And for my junkies across the pond I can’t wait for my triple (or more) dose of Tatiana Maslany. Who doesn’t want to know more about the male clones running around the streets? The series returns on the 18th.
Watch the promo below.
