Ahead of its premiere in April, HBO have released the first teaser trailer for the hotly anticipated sixth season of Game of Thrones. While the initial promotional poster suggested that Jon Snow might not be dead after all, this video hints at quite the opposite for many of the Seven Kingdom’s other settlers.
The eery clip moves slowly around the Hall of Faces, focusing on the “masks” of the certainly-deceased Eddard, Catelyn and Robb Stark, as well as former king Joffrey Baratheon. However, it also shows the decapitated heads of Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion, Jamie and Cersei Lannister, and Arya and Sansa Stark. “The long night is coming,” warns the voice of Jon Snow. “And the dead come with it.”
April 24 can’t come soon enough.
UPDATE (3/8): The official season 6 trailer is finally here.
