Spring is coming! Which means the new season of Game of Thrones is right around the corner!
The fans of the hit fantasy series were blessed by the Lord of The Light (aka HBO) with teaser clips of the new season, which producer Bryan Cogman has described as the beginning of “phase two” for the show. He explains:
“The storylines are blending in exciting ways. The set pieces and scope of the world has expanded hugely.”

The first sneak peek in the video (above) features Peter Dinklage and Conleth Hill. Tyrion questions Varys’s motives for saving him. Varys always seems to be a few steps ahead of everyone else. Maybe Tyrion is more powerful than he thinks?
Kit Harington seems to agree that season five could be the most pivotal point in the show’s overall story. The actor had this to say:
“Some of my favorite TV shows in history, the best season was five – and they’ve maintained [the quality] till the end, but the best season was five. So this year’s important to me, to all of us, in keeping that standard.”
The second clip (below) features Harington and Ciar├â┬ín Hinds. Jon Snow confronts the returning opponent of the Night’s Watch, Mance Rayder.
If we can hold out, season five of Game of Thrones premieres April 12 on HBO!
