The highly anticipated trailer for the third season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ has released, and it begins with an ominous voiceover proclaiming that ‘It’s been a long time, my old friend’.
The rest of the trailer has scenes from the upcoming season, and we see quite a lot of Dany, her dragons, Jon Snow, the Starks, and of course, Tyrion Lannister. The theme of the trailer seems to be death, as Catelyn Stark says, “Death is coming for everyone and everything.”
After the show debuted its first season on HBO two years ago, the producers and network bosses were worried that the show might be too fantasy oriented to be able to make a big impact on television. Well, they needn’t have worried because Game of Thrones has become one of the highest rated and critically acclaimed shows on television since its first airing, and the third season has been hotly anticipated by fans.
Fans of George R.R. Martin’s ‘Song of Ice and Fire’ series also know that the third book in the series, ‘A Storm of Swords’, is considered one of the best, and has many shocking twists and turns. While nothing is revealed in this trailer, fans don’t have to wait long as the third season will debut on March 31st at 9 PM.
