Updated by Rick Marshall on 01-08-2016: HBO is reportedly in talks to renew Game of Thrones for a seventh and eighth season, according to Entertainment Weekly, with the eighth season possibly ending the series.

HBO has announced that three of its most popular shows — Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, and Veep — will return with back-to-back-to-back season premieres on April 24.

Game of Thrones kicks off the Sunday evening with its season six premiere at 9 p.m. With the show having finally caught up to the books, it’s anyone’s guess where the plot is headed over the course of the next 10 episodes, but a recent teaser hinted that a fan-favorite character thought to be dead and gone might not be so gone after all.

After being absent throughout the entire fifth season, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) will be making a return this season. The young actor confirmed his return in July, and his voice can be heard in a trailer for season six.

Following the Game of Thrones kickoff, Silicon Valley will begin its 10-episode third season at 10 p.m. The comedy has always been reflective of the actual Silicon Valley, and that level of realism may be taken even further in season three. In October it was reported that former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo would be working as a consultant for the show this season.

Veep kicks off its fifth season — also 10 episodes — at 10:30 p.m. The show which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as former Vice President Selina Meyer, now president of the United States, as of the show’s third season. Season four was widely acclaimed by critics, and ended on such a note that it’s difficult to say what the fifth season will bring for the characters.

Thanks to services like HBO Now and HBO Go, it’s easier than ever to watch these shows as they air live (assuming the latter doesn’t have the same issues it did last year), but plenty of people will likely take a different route. Last month it was reported that Game of Thones remains the most pirated show on TV.
