All’s been quiet on the Westeros front for a while now, but here’s finally some concrete news: the premiere month of season 2 has been set.

It might not be huge news, considering that is has been speculated heavily by fans, but now AOL TV has confirmed that the show will indeed return to HBO in April 2012.

Though AOL just reported the news today, last week HBO ran a promo on their channel which touted the April timeframe.

No specific premiere date has been set, but at least now we know how long of a wait we’ve really got: six months. Whoa. How are you handling your withdrawals so far?
