HBO announces mysterious new Game of Thrones special to air in February 2015

We’re still anxiously awaiting fresh intel on the new season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, and now the network has scheduled a mysterious new special.

We still don’t have an official premiere date for season five, but the “A Day in the Life” special is scheduled to air on Sunday, Feb. 8, in prime time. As hardcore fans will likely notice, that timeline coincides with a behind-the-scenes featurette that aired before season four’s premiere at about the same time in 2014. 

So, though HBO hasn’t provided any description for the special yet, it’s likely it’ll be a preview showing off some new footage from season five and perhaps recapping a bit of what’s come before. Judging by the title, it could also focus on life behind the scenes, or the shooting of a specific scene (or scenes) in the next season.

Assuming the timeline holds, this also means we can probably expect a season premiere around April, which is when the last season debuted. A debut trailer should also drop in mid-to-late January, if HBO sticks to the same template.

Are you champing at the bit to see more Game of Thrones in 2015?
