Fans of HBO’s fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” rejoice — your long wait for the April 24 season six premiere just got a little easier. The network has released the first full-length trailer for the new season.
Set against James Vincent McMorrow’s acoustic version of the Chris Isaak song “Wicked Game,” the trailer features the blood, guts and flesh that fans of the show have come to expect.
What it doesn’t have, however, is any information about whether any of the characters who appeared to die last season are, in fact, dead this season. For that, you’ll just have to wait until April like everyone else.
The red band trailer is available on the HBO website, and contains “mature content.” If it whets an appetite for the show that just won’t wait until next month, read our feature about vacation destinations in exotic places where the show was shot.
