Winter (and dragon goodness) is coming!
To say we are huge Game of Thrones fans is a bit of an understatement. We tore through the books, the shirts (Team Stark, natch!) and we've re-watched season one more times than we can count.
So you can imagine our excitement when HBO debuted an "in production" video tonight before Boardwalk Empire, which featured never-before-seen footage and gave fans a first look at new characters from George R.R. Martin's series like Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), Melisandre (Carice van Houten) and more!
Oh, Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Robb Stark (Richard Madden), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), how we missed you so! And Joffrey (Jack Gleeson)? Eh, not so much.
While we don't get to see a lot of new season two footage in the video, HBO showed just enough to whet our appetites and make April seem even further away than ever before. With first looks at Stannis, Melisandre, Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham), just a few of the new faces joining the show, we're excited to see the world of GoT become even bigger next season.
Game of Thrones is set to return in (sigh) Spring 2012. Can you stand the wait?
