In less than two weeks, the world returns to Westeros as the acclaimed HBO fantasy drama ‘Game of Thrones’ returns for its fourth season. Lately, we’ve been getting a ton of new clips, featurettes, and trailers to get us hyped for the April 6th premiere. We’ve even gotten news and rumors about the future of the show as the showrunners have been signed on for two more seasons and author George R.R. Martin has been talking about the possibility of a few movies set in this mythical world that he has created. But now, we have some brand new promos to check out while we anxiously wait with anticipation for Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and the whole gang to return to our screens.
Earlier this week, the official ‘Game of Thrones’ YouTube channel debuted a couple of new promotional videos for the upcoming season premiere. While they only clock in at thirty seconds each and mostly show off footage that we’ve seen before, they contain a good amount of action and tease what each of our favorite characters are up to when the first episode opens up. You can check out the promos titled ‘Awaken’ and ‘All Men’ below:
For more information on the fourth season, here’s an in-depth synopsis:
Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact … but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne.
‘Game of Thrones’ starring Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer, Maisie Williams, and Sophie Turner, among many others, returns to HBO on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 9:00pm.
