HBO has premiered an in-production trailer for the second season of Game of Thrones.  The trailer provides a behind-the-scenes look at the filming on season two with co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss talking about the storytelling challenges ahead.  For readers of the books, this will be a must-see trailer since it provides first looks at new characters.  I’m sure fans will debate whether or not the actor they’re seeing matches up with the person they envisioned.  If you’re like me and haven’t read the books, you’ll think “Hey!  Haven’t seen that person before!  I wonder what they’ll be up to.”  But what concerns me more than new characters is what Benioff and Weiss had to say about expanding the world and introducing new characters.  They took season one as a sign that an audience would accept such a large canvas.  However, Game of Thrones took around six episodes to really start cracking.  How long will it take for season two to heat up if we’re back to introductions?

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The new season of Game of Thrones premieres April 2012.

    Matt, I’ve read the second book. I didn’t watch the video, but am responding to what you wrote. Season 2 will pick up directly where season 1 left off and the main characters from the first season will continue to be the main characters in season 2. The new ones will be similar to Drago’s character, part of the story line but not the focus (except 1 or 2). I’ve only read the first two books, but it seems to me that some of the new characters in the second book become more focal in Book 3, so we’ll have to wait around for that.

    Really looking forward to it. I think it’s arguably the best show on TV at the moment.
