The Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer Has Arrived, And It’s Absolutely Amazing

All Houses of Westeros, rejoice! HBO has just released the Game of Thrones Season 6 trailer, and if its one minute and forty-one seconds is any indication, this season promises to be the best of the series.

The trailer drops teases for just about every character we love (or love to hate), including a captured Dany, a returning Jaime, and a fleeing Sansa (good to know she survived that fall). It also promises the return of Bran Stark, who was MIA for all of Season 5 while he hunkered down with the three-eyed raven North of the Wall. And how about Cersei choosing violence, and using Franken-Mountain as her personal weapon of choice? Also, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get goosebumps when Ser Davos unsheathed Longclaw, Jon’s Valyrian steel sword, and said “I’ve never been much of a fighter. Apologies for what you’re about to see.” Honestly, there’s nothing not to love here.

The new season will once again feature its award-winning ensemble cast, seeing the return of Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Aidan Gillen (Petyr Baelish), Kit Harington (Jon Snow, and yes, Harrington has confirmed he is returning, though he claims it’s only as Jon’s corpse), Diana Rigg (Olenna Tyrell), Natalie Dormer (Magaery Tyrell), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark). The season will also see Ian McShane of Deadwood fame joining the cast.

Maisie Williams, who plays the youngest Stark girl, explains that the show is racing toward the final confrontation between good and evil, saying:

I loved shooting this series, I think people are going to really enjoy it. Everything is now sort of wrapping up and slotting into place for the finale, and I love that all the pieces are coming together.

It’s hard to imagine that Game of Thrones will someday come to its inevitable (and very likely depressing) conclusion, but in the meantime, it seems a sure bet that Season 6 will be the most exciting yet.

The ten-episode run of Game of Thrones Season 6 will premiere on HBO on Sunday, April 24th.
