In a report for Polygon, Julia Alexander writes that HBO‘s hit Game of Thrones may not hit our screens until May, even though the show typically premieres in April. “This is based on the timing of HBO’s winter slate of shows, including Girls, Togetherness and new series Vinyl.”
Vinyl hits screens February 14 whereas Togetherness and Girls do not return until February 21, a week later. As Alexander puts it, “Doing some simple math, that means Vinyl will end April 24, with Girls and Togetherness ending May 1.” The potential knock-on is clear.
As yet, nothing is confirmed but Alexander reports that, “A representative for HBO told Polygon that as of right now, nothing has been pushed back because an air date hasn’t officially been announced.”
