Much like Winter, season 5 of Game of Thrones is coming. The difference being that we’ve been hearing the Starks’ meteorological predictions for years now with very little to show for it, whereas.the fifth season of the hit HBO fantasy drama actually has a release date and now also a whole lot of tantalizing pics, as well an incredible trailer.
More specifically, a trailer with music by David Bowie, because seeing the return of Tyrion, another wedding (don’t these people learn?), the introduction of Oberyn Martell’s daughters – the Sand Snakes – and the ever-scheming Varys dropping a bombshell of a declaration on who should rule the Seven Kingdoms and more, was apparently not exciting enough!
Ebonically speaking: OH SNAP! And while you try to get your head wrapped around the awesomeness of Daenerys backed by Varys and Tyrion, or Sophie Turner’s Sansa Stark seemingly well on her path to the Dark Side, have a look at these 20 new hi-res images courtesy of Watchers On The Wall. The pics shows us some familiar faces but also give us a better look at some of the new characters like Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma), Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig), Areo Hotah (DeObia Oparei), and the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce).
Game of Thrones season 5 debuts on HBO on April 12, 2015. Hopefully we’ll have it on our local screens shortly thereafter.
