“Make no mistake, the dead are coming.”
Following the shocking developments at the conclusion of “Game of Thrones” season 5, including Jon Snow’s bloody fate at the hands of Castle Black mutineers, Daenerys’ near-demise at the fighting pits of Meereen, and Cersei’s public humiliation in the streets of King’s Landing, survivors from all parts of Westeros and Essos regroup to press forward, inexorably, towards their uncertain individual fates.
Familiar faces will forge new alliances to bolster their strategic chances at survival, while new characters will emerge to challenge the balance of power in the east, west, north and south. New cast members for the 6th season include: Pilou Asbaek, Essie Davis, Souad Faress, James Faulkner, Richard E. Grant, Ian McShane, Joe Naufau, Freddie Stroma, and Max von Sydow.
The newly released “Game of Thrones” season 6 trailer offers a fresh new look of what’s to come and hints at some of the beloved characters’ fates. For example, Jon Snow. Aptly, the trailer opens with Davos and the Night’s Watch standing guard around Jon’s body. We also get a great money shot of Drogo flying across the sky while Khaleesi gets stripped by her Dothraki captives.
And also, White Walkers. Though there’s no knowing if it’s part of Bran Stark‘s vision or an actual attack from the Night’s King and his horde of Walker. Again, because “Game of Thrones” (the show) will finally overtake the books for the first time in history, nobody really knows what to expect, especially not the book readers, because “The Winds of Winter” is not finished yet.
At this point, your guess is as good as ours – and anyone else’s, for that matter. Watch the heart-pounding new trailer below:
“Game of Thrones” returns for its 10-episode 6th season in Asia the same time as the US – exclusively on HBO (Astro Ch 411 / 431) this 25th April at 9am, with a same day encore at 9pm, with new episodes every Monday at the same time.
