The imminent arrival of Game of Thrones Season 5 has literary creator George R.R. Martin racing to finish sixth novel The Winds of Winter, but TV may have placed yet another obstacle in his path. Martin will have a hand in developing a new HBO sci-fi period drama Captain Cosmos, with another writer already on board.

Harry Potter may have come and gone, and no one knows who or where we’ll find any Fantastical Beasts, but J.K. Rowling’s next book is already getting the adaptation treatment. The first full trailer fro HBO’s The Casual Vacancy miniseries has arrived, with more than a few Harry Potter stars in tow.
Despite Game of Thrones Season 5 diverging from its source material, the upcoming year proves notable as the first without creator George R.R. Martin penning at least one episode. Now, Martin confirms that the same will be true of Game of Thrones Season 6, instead taking time to perfect the literary saga’s penultimate chapter, The Winds of Winter.
We’ve not even crossed over to April just yet, let alone the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere on April 12, but already the first episodes have begun taking shape. Find out where Arya lands in Braavos with a new clip from HBO’s fifth season epic, and get some early intel on the premiere!
Once upon a time, Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin would casually dismiss notions that HBO’s fantasy smash could ever catch up to his novels. Now, with Season 5 burning to debut on April 12, and two books remaining in Martin’s series, Game of Thrones producers confirm the show will inevitably overtake, and spoil at least some material for readers.
Of every Girls season finale, “Home Birth” feels the most final — major changes and life plans happen in the blink of an eye; new lives enter this world and familiar faces fade; and perhaps what makes this episode feel so final is the “six months later” coda, which feels just as unnecessary here as it does in just about any other film or television show. That’s not to say that the conclusion doesn’t have its charms, but it might have been best saved for next season, given the powerful sequence that preceded it.
HBO hilariously (and profanely) reintroduced us to the world of Mike Judge tech comedy Silicon Valley by its first Season 2 teaser, though with April 12 fast approaching, Pied Piper finally has new footage to show. Who’s ready for the efficient prioritization of bros by the first official Silicon Valley Season 2 trailer?
It’s been a good long while since we’ve heard anything substantial from True Detective Season 2, but for those wondering if the borderline-obscene sexuality quotient would remain intact, have we got a treat for you! Season 2 will apparently feature a “colossal orgy sequence,” recruiting real-life porn stars Amia Miley and Peta Jensen for aid.
Earlier today Game of Thrones Season 5 shone a light on over a dozen new photos of the upcoming run, but why stop there? The HBO fantasy drama leaves the world of Westeros behind in its first formal clips of Season 5, along with new photos of Dornish and Lannister characters we’ve yet to meet.
We’re less than a month from the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere, and even with two trailers under our belt, the old gods and the new have seen fit to tease even more of HBO’s fifth run at George R.R. Martin’s fantasy drama. See a new side of Season 5 with a bevy of new Game of Thrones photos, as well as behind-the-scenes previews and a new trailer!
