We finally got our first official look at the upcoming fourth season of ‘Game of Thrones’ last month. However, the first bit of footage was only six seconds long and that’s certainly not enough to feed the hunger of the rabid fan base of HBO’s acclaimed fantasy drama. But now, how about we give you about 50 seconds instead?
Earlier this week, we learned the return date for the intricate cable series based on the works of George R.R. Martin is in April. Along with that announcement, we also got word that the first full trailer for the new season will premiere on Sunday before the debut of HBO’s new show ‘True Detective’. But to further entice us to tune in, the official ‘Game of Thrones’ Vine account has posted five brand new teasers featuring fan favorite characters Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, and Jon Snow, as well as a new character named Oberyn Martell, who is played by ‘The Good Wife’ and ‘Graceland’ star Pedro Pascal. You can check out all five action-packed teasers below:
Of course, thanks to the social media site that they were posted on, these very short sneak peeks don’t give us much to go on. But that’s the point of a teaser, isn’t it? We’ll find out why the Mother of Dragons looks so worried or why the former Hand of the King is in shackles soon enough, but for now, it’s fun to just speculate on all the awesomeness coming our way. Naturally, if you’ve already read all the books, then you’re ahead of the game, but don’t be that guy and spoil it for everyone waiting to see the story unfold on their television sets.
Anyway, what do you think about these Vines giving glimpses of the fourth season of ‘Game of Thrones’? Are you planning on tuning in to HBO at 8:58pm ET to check out the first trailer? Let us know in the comment section.
‘Game of Thrones’ returns for it’s fourth season premiere on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 9:00pm.
