Game Of Thrones Scoop: [Spoiler] Promoted to Series Regular — But There's a Twist!

Winter 2015 is coming!

Although HBO has yet to announce a premiere date for Game of Thrones‘ fourth season, producers of the smash have already secured the services of a key player for Season 5.

TVLine has learned that Nashville and Treme actor Michiel Huisman, who is set appear in multiple Season 4 episodes as Daenerys’ love interest Daario Naharis, has inked a deal to return as a full-fledged series regular in a possible fifth season.

The in-demand Huisman (who is also set to recur in Season 2 of Orphan Black) replaces Ed Skrein, who originated the role of Daario in Season 3.

Thrones‘ fourth season will bow sometime this spring.

Well, at least we know they're thinking ahead. Lol.
