As if there wasn’t any way we could get more excited, the latest trailer has dropped for the fourth season of Game of Thrones. Betrayals and deceptions seem to be at an all time high, with major war seemingly just around the corner. It’s a great new trailer, teasing us with new footage from the new chapter. Ever since a certain wedding in season three, we’ve all been dying to see what certain characters will do for revenge. Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons are looking pretty grown up too, locking her in as the one woman who could bring everything crashing down – as is evidenced by some spectacular looking war-footage.
Scroll down to see the season’s official poster and synopsis, which may have a few spoilers for those not quite up to date, or for those who haven’t read the books.
The fourth season will star Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Charles Dance, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Aiden Turner, Iain Glen, Rose Leslie, Carice Van Houten, Alfie Allen, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Tom Wlaschiha and Isaac Hempstead Wright.
Official synopsis for Game of Thrones season four:
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 Season 4 premieres April 6 at 9PM, only on HBO.
