While we haven't heard HBO confirm this premiere date yet, we can speculate that season 4 will air around the same time season 3 was released this year.

The countdown begins, "Game of Thrones" fans! Winter is coming, and when the spring thaws the ice, Jon Snow will be waiting for you.

As we previously reported, the director of the penultimate episode of season 4 has teased a great battle coming soon. According to HNGN, Neil Marshall said we can expect to see "a few beheadings" in the episode that takes place at Castle Black.

"We got to blow some people up, set people on fire and do quite a few high falls. We pack quite a lot of stuff in there," he said.

"The Castle Black episode has three different battles going on at the same time in different places," Marshall revealed, "so it's a bit more complex from that point of view."

The director said there will be more than 200 extras and a large number of stuntmen.

"This episode is loaded with stunts, effects gags and visual effects. It's a very, very action-packed episode!" he said.

"We have huge sets that they build - in the case of 'Blackwater' it was a section of King's Landing. For this episode we didn't have to build Castle Black, we already had it. But it's an amazing set," Marshall said.

"They built another inside the Paint Hall for the top of the Wall, and that was so big it took up the entire studio. We got a special backdrop made for it and one of the things about Paint Hall that makes it quite unique is that it's much taller than most film studios. The backdrop went around almost 360 degrees and it turned out that it's the biggest backdrop in Europe."
