HBO have released the third trailer (titled “Secrets” by the cable network) for the highly anticipated fourth season of Game of Thrones, and it does an incredible job of teasing what’s to come when the series based on the beloved George R.R. Martin novels returns this April.

The footage (which offers up a look at everything from Daenerys now rather large dragons to Jon Snow’s return from beyond the wall) was aired before tonight’s finale of True Detective on HBO in the US, and fans are already speculating that this season of Game of Thrones will also draw from the fourth and fifth books due to the fact that they start around the same time chronologically.

The upcoming season will mostly be based on the second half of the third book (A Storm of Swords: Blood and Gold) in the George R.R. Martin series, meaning that we’re in store for another ten incredible episodes.

In the wake of the Red Wedding, how does the North pick up the pieces and with their greatest enemy seemingly crushed, where does that leave the Lannisters. Daenerys Targaryen now has an army but is she ready to take back her homeland. Does Jon Snow turn south to seek revenge or remember his duty along the Wall?

Are you looking forward to the return of Game of Thrones? The small screen adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s series of novels returns to HBO on April 6th and will air just one night later in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
