Spring may be coming to New York, but winter is coming to Union Square.
HBO is planning a stunt in Union Square on March 15 to promote the April start of the highly anticipated sixth season of “Game of Thrones,” and it could involve dragons landing in in the park, according to a calendar item for the Community Board 5 parks committee.
A spokeswoman for HBO confirmed the network has something planned, but declined to go into specifics.
A Parks Department spokeswoman said the department has issued a permit for HBO to hold an event in Union Square Park on March 15, but deferred to the network for details.
"Game of Thrones," the wildly popular drama about the political intrigues and epic battles between good, not so good, pretty bad, and evil in the fictional land of Westeros, is set to return on April 24.
Not much is known about the content of the coming season, but fans hope to get some answers about the fates of Jon Snow, the rest of the surviving Starks, and many more of the show’s seemingly infinite plotlines
Dragons landing in Union Square would not be the first time the show has popped up in New York streets. After the final episode of season five left the beloved Jon Snow mortally wounded (or is he?!), a memorial to the possibly slain Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch appeared in Williamsburg, to the chagrin of some viewers who had fallen behind.
