The wait has been a long one for Game of Thrones fans to get a glimpse of their favorite stars and characters in the upcoming fifth season later in the Spring: but it’s a wait that’s been cut somewhat by the news that a preview special, titled A Day in the Life, will be landing in February.

The special was spotted in HBO’s 2015 schedule by an eagle-eyed fan as airing on Sunday, February 8; and although little is known about it aside from the title, it’s been speculated by fans that it will follow a similar format to the 2014 special, Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing, which gave viewers an advance preview of Season 4. So far, the only snippets of material from the fifth season that have made their way out were the tiniest of clips in this HBO promo video:

Season 5 is likely to premiere in April 2015, and adds Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) to its already overflowing ranks of British stars. Lena Headey, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Natalie Dormer, Iain Glen and Maisie Williams all return, among many, many others.

Are you looking forward to the new season?
