Well, here’s something to keep you occupied while you sit at home, twiddling your thumbs between Christmas and New Year’s. HBO announced today that it scheduled a Games Of Thrones marathon beginning December 26 and ending December 31. Each day, an entire season of the show will air on HBO2 beginning at 12 p.m. ET. It’s the perfect way to catch up if you’re somehow behind, or to just avoid human interaction for a period of time while consuming copious amounts of leftovers and eggnog. (Just don’t vomit during the particularly gruesome scenes!) New episodes of the series aren’t coming for a while, so consider this fuel for the long winter months. The shortened seventh season is set to premiere in summer 2017.
