Cape Town - The night is dark and full of terrors.

The long wait is nearly over, Game of Thrones fans. M-Net has announced that the epic fantasy series will be returning to local screens for its third season on Friday, 12 April at 21:30.

The Emmy-winning TV series is one of M-Net's 'Hot on the Heels of the US premiere' titles and will be screened on South African screens after first airing on HBO in the US on 31 March.

M-Net had initially set the SA premiere for 5 April but moved it back by a week in anticipation of a one-week production break in the US, likely to occur in the second half of the season.

The third season of Game of Thrones will, as with previous seasons, run for 10 episodes and continues the tale of the bloody fight for the rule over the realm of the seven kingdoms of Westeros as a number of noble families lay claim to the Iron Throne.

New characters from George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, on which the series is based, will be revealed such as the Wildling "King-Beyond-The-Wall Mance Rayder, and the gifted Reed siblings Jojen and Meera who join young Bran Stark on his treachourous  journey beyond The Wall.
