Game-of-Thrones-Season-4-sliceFollowing on from the recent announcement that HBO’s hugely popular Game of Thrones will be returning at the start of April with its fourth season, the network has teased five trailer previews ahead of the full trailer this Sunday.

The season picks up where things left off, and is expected to roughly equate to the second half of A Storm of Swords, the third novel in George R.R. Martin’s best-selling series, A Song of Fire and Ice.

After co-creator David Benioff made his television directorial debut last season, he’ll be back behind the camera for the season premiere, helming the opening episode alongside fellow co-creator D.B. Weiss.

The ten-episode season also sees George R.R. Martin return to the fold, penning the second episode in the new season, continuing his output of writing the script for one episode a season.

The cast will be as brilliant as it ever has been, with Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, and plenty more.

Game of Thrones Season 4 will debut on HBO on April 6th, with its UK premiere set for the following day on Sky Atlantic. As we await the first full trailer for the new season, landing this Sunday before HBO’s anticipated new series, True Detective, here are the five previews to tie you over.
