Finally we’re given more than a silly, incredibly short, shows nothing, teaser to tide us through the long winter before Game of Thrones returns in April of next year. In this behind-the-scenes featurette, HBO gives us our first look at season two of their wildy succesful series. It’s a spoiler free video, for the most part. You get your first glimpse of Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), Melisandre (Carice van Houten), Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and there are plenty of returning faces, but, sadly, you won’t get any actual clip from the show.
What you do have is a lot of production talk as show creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. They share their challenges with a second season and their hopes for the series’ future. Watch it below and let us know what you’re most excited to see in season two?
Even though this featurette is still very much a tease I can’t say enough how happy I am to see all these characters returning. Well, y’know, most of them returning. And it stinks we don’t get a look at Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth, Liam Cunningham as Ser Davos Seaworth, Rose Leslie as Ygritte, or Gemma Whalen as Yara Greyjoy (Asha in the books), but I guess they’ve got to keep me craving something. Damn pushers.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO in April of 2012.
