HBO has released a new trailer for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. The new trailer provides the first glimpse of the second season, mainly with characters looking pensive and/or worried. But what sells it is the voice over from Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane). You may recall that King Robert (Mark Addy) bequeathed the Iron Throne to his brother Stannis until the Wretched Little Shit Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) came of age. However, Joffrey and his mother Cersei basically usurped the throne, and Stannis is clearly none too happy about it. Last season, the tagline was “Winter Is Coming”. Now it looks like “Cold Winds Are Rising”. BRING A JACKET (or pelt, or whatever).
Hit the jump to check out the new trailer. Season 2 of Game of Thrones premieres April 2012.
