Game Of Thrones premiere announced

Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage will return for the new series of Game Of Thrones

The Game Of Thrones season two premiere will be broadcast in the UK less than a day after it airs in the US.

Sky Atlantic has announced that, fresh from its success at the Golden Globes where Peter Dinklage won Best Supporting Actor, the series will return to the UK channel on Monday, April 2.

Although many of the original cast bowed out during the first series due to their characters being killed off, the 10-episode run sees the return of Emilia Clarke, Alfie Allen, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Aidan Gillen, Kit Harington and Dinklage, who also won an Emmy for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister.

The fantasy series is based on George RR Martin's book series A Song Of Ice And Fire, and portrays a struggle for power in a vast and violent universe.

A spokesperson for the series said: "After the revelations at the end of season one, which hinted at the dangers lying beyond the great wall, it's set to be a season of exploration, danger and death this time round. The cold winds are rising across Westeros, as the bloody battle for the Iron Throne continues."

Dinklage hit the headlines for highlighting the case of injured dwarf actor Martin Henderson in his Golden Globes acceptance speech.
