“The real war is between the living and the dead. And make no mistake, the dead are coming.” During last night’s Season 6 premiere of their hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, HBO unleashed a brand new trailer, which has just been released online.

Opening (again) on Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) death, the second official trailer is chock-full of new footage (and quote-worthy quotes); including our very first look at Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk)! Yay!!

It also features a look at the many, many, many returning players in the deadly game for the Iron Throne, including: Cersei, Jaime, Sansa, Arya, Daenerys, Tyrion, Littlefinger, Margaery, Loras, Varys, Davos, Ramsay, the Freys, Bran, Theon, Brienne, Jorah, the White Walkers, dragons and more.

According to Entertainment Weekly, most of the footage used in the trailer comes from the first episode (if that’s true, then we’re in for quite a ride) and the whole thing is a feast for the eyes, so keep them peeled. Also, there’s a spine tingling scene in the very last seconds of the trailer so, yeah, be sure to stick around right until the very last second.

True Fact: Tyrion Lannister is awesome.


Here’s the official synopsis:

Following the shocking developments at the conclusion of season five, 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.

Game of Thrones premieres April 24 on HBO.
