Game of Thrones season 5 premieres on 12 April on HBOGameOfThrones/Facebook

Game of Thrones season 5 premiere airs this Sunday, 12 April on HBO. Fans have been eagerly-awaiting for the popular HBO drama to return with its new season.

The new season will pick up after the shocking events of the season 4 finale and many questions will be hopefully answered. Among those in mind include; what does a darker and grown up Sansa do from hereon? Will Prince Oberyn's daughters - The Sand Snakes avenge their father's death? What lay ahead for Tyrion after killing Tywin Lannister?

During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion on the show, shared some details on his character's state in the upcoming season.

"He's in a world of pain and s**t when we find him," Dinklage said. "Obviously for good reason. But he has some people around him who convince him to get back on his feet because he's sort of ready to end it, which is very un-Tyrion like. He's ready to give up," the actor said.

Official synopsis for the premiere episode reads: "Cersei and Jaime adjust to a world without Tywin. Varys reveals a conspiracy to Tyrion. Daenerys faces a new threat to her rule. Jon is caught between two kings."

Game of Thrones season 5, episode 1 titled, The Wars to Come, airs Sunday, 12 April at 9pm on HBO.
