Released ahead of last night’s premiere of True Detective on HBO, we now have the first trailer for the highly anticipated fourth season of Game of Thrones. There’s an awful lot of great footage contained in this brief 1:43 long sneak peek, with a focus on each of the main characters (it appears as if those dragons have grown a fair bit since last season), and plenty of intriguing moments for those who haven’t read the books and satisfying ones for those that have.

Needless to say, it looks fantastic!

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 6th and will air just one night later in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
