HBO does a great job at keeping “Game of Thrones” fans engaged during the show’s hiatus. There’s always some new tidbit to keep the show fresh in your mind. Right after season three ended there were the casting rumors for the next season. Then a few weeks later a few photos emerge from new sets. Last night before the premiere of “True Detective” and “Girls”, HBO ran a brand new trailer for season four, and finally provided fans with a definite premiere date.
Check out the trailer for “Game of Thrones” Season 4 below.
You’d think the “Red Wedding” of season 3 could have brightened the spirits of the Lannisters, but the trailer clearly shows that Tywin’s major chess move hasn’t settled the acrimony in his own family. A locked in chains Tyrion is obviously miserable. Jon Snow needs all of the Wall’s protection to keep the wildings attack at bay.
The new breakout character for season 4 should be Oberyn Martell, better known as the Red Viper. Martell is a Lord from Dorne, the southern part of the country. He’s headed to Westeros for retribution, and as a thorn in Cersei’s side. He’s the type of character who’s all over next year’s comic-con.
Season 4 kicks off from Westeros on April 6th, 2014.
Date: Sunday, April 6th
Episode Title: “Game of Thrones Season 4 Premiere”
