The Game is about to begin again: Prepare for battle.
The first full-length trailer for the Game of Thrones‘ upcoming fourth season debuted Sunday on HBO, giving us a glimpse of what’s ahead for the good (and evil) people of Westeros and beyond.
What leapt out at us: Daenerys laying down the law, Jaime’s haircut, Wildings invading, Arya drawing a sword, Joffrey’s wedding, Melisandre being creepy (as usual), a new threat (?) for the Lannisters and a tearful Tyrion telling someone, “If you want justice, you’ve come to the wrong place.”
Thrones returns on Sunday, April 6, at 9/8c.

Winter 2015 is coming!
Although HBO has yet to announce a premiere date for Game of Thrones‘ fourth season, producers of the smash have already secured the services of a key player for Season 5.
TVLine has learned that Nashville and Treme actor Michiel Huisman, who is set appear in multiple Season 4 episodes as Daenerys’ love interest Daario Naharis, has inked a deal to return as a full-fledged series regular in a possible fifth season.
The in-demand Huisman (who is also set to recur in Season 2 of Orphan Black) replaces Ed Skrein, who originated the role of Daario in Season 3.
Thrones‘ fourth season will bow sometime this spring.
Actor Jack Gleeson said he’d like to quit acting professionally and focus on charity work.
Telltale Games, the studio behind the award-winning video game based on The Walking Dead, has said that it will give the same treatment to HBO’s fantasy epic Game of Thrones. The news confirms a rumor reported by IGN last month. As with other Telltale releases such as The Walking Dead and the recently released The Wolf Among Us, the Game of Thrones title will be an episodic series, and is said to start in 2014.
Telltale says it’s working with HBO on the game series, suggesting it will bear more similarity to the TV show than George R. R. Martin’s original A Song of Ice and Fire books. “We’ll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great,” said Telltale CEO Dan Connors during the announcement at the VGX 2013 awards show. “We’re just really getting into it right now and thinking about characters — who has the most at stake, who has the biggest impact on the world.”
Telltale’s effort isn’t the first to be based on the smash hit series — a mediocre action RPG was released last year, and a free-to-play MMO is in the works — but the developer’s proven formula of interactive, character-driven storytelling may well be the best fit.
