It’s mere days away and fans of Game of Thrones can now feast their eyes on a brand new season six promo trailer.
Ahead of the episode premiering this Sunday, HBO has begun to broadcast a new video of segments from the Emmy-winning fantasy series.
The 30 second teaser doesn’t reveal all that much, but we do get glimpses of Ellaria and two Targaryen knights.
Earlier this week it was revealed that the part of Lothar Frey has been recast for season 6.
He is now being played by Daniel Tuite. Given that Lothar was the character responsible for stabbing to death the pregnant Talisa Stark, perhaps this recasting suggests we could see him get his comeuppance.
Writer George R.R. Martin, who penned the books that inspired the series, also admitted this week that he’s open to a Game of Thrones spin-off.
“There is certainly no lack of material,” Martin told Entertainment Weekly. “Every episode of The Naked City – one of the television shows I watched as a kid – ended with a voice-over: ‘There are eight million stories in the naked city. This has been one of them.’ There are eight million stories in Westeros as well … and even more in Essos and the lands beyond. A whole world full of stories, waiting to be told… if indeed HBO is interested.”
Game of Thrones season 6 begins on HBO on Sunday night, being simulcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic at 2am.
