HBO is starting to ramp up the excitement for Game of Thrones season 6, if it even needed to, teasing the first clips from new episodes in a 'Yearender' round-up.
New footage is scant, but sees:
- Cersei, with her hair growing back following the Walk of Atonement, hugging her son King Tommen
- A slightly dishevelled Daenerys Targaryen out in the wilderness
- Ramsay Bolton accompanied by bannermen, apparently ready for battle
The clips (which start at 2:15) are the only fresh ones, the others seen in HBO's promo having been taken from season 5 or earlier.
Exciting though they are, they only serve to create a thirst for more - something which should be sated next month when we get a proper trailer.
Game of Thrones season 6 arrives on HBO and Sky Atlantic in April, probably on the 24th.
