GAME OF THRONES Season 5 Teaser Hints at Darkness to Come

We’re still about five months away from the premiere of Game of Thrones fifth season, but HBO is ready to kick off the long-lead marketing today (which is fitting given this week’s heavy quantity of big trailers).  A very brief Game of Thrones Season 5 teaser has been released online that’s more enigmatic than it is revealing, but it does offer a tiny bit of footage from the new season.  For fear of spoiling who’s still alive in the show’s fifth season I won’t go into anymore detail here, but fans of the books might spot a clue or two for what’s in store.  This new season could mark a turning point for the show, as showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss caught up with George R.R. Martin’s book series in a couple of the show’s major storylines last season and have said that the series will likely conclude with Season 7 (or at the most 8).  Essentially, Benioff and Weiss are setting up their endgame now with two Martin books still unpublished, so we could be heading into uncharted territory with Season 5. The series will likely return to HBO in either early April or late March.

 

The trailer was revealed on the official Game of Thrones Twitter and ends with a link to ThreeEyedRaven.com, where you can sign up to get updates on the new season.
