Dragons, retribution and the dead are coming in this new official trailer for Game of Thrones sixth season, sent our way from HBO earlier today.

The series kicks off its ten-episode sixth season Sunday, April 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m.), and it looks like the Lannisters, among others, are out for blood.

Meanwhile the Night’s Watch faces a crisis (yes there’s a glimpse of Jon Snow’s still very dead looking corpse) as they look to their future without a leader.

Daenerys also looks to be going through an ordeal as she attempts to prove herself to her new captors/would-be friends.

Would aid in the form of a dragon be helpful? It might, if Tyrion can persuade those who are holding her kingdom together to free them.

Based on the popular book series A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin, the series chronicles an epic struggle for power in the vast and violent continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years.

Among the returning members of the ensemble cast are Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Alfie Allen, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, John Bradley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Conleth Hill, Jonathan Pryce and Gwendoline Christie.

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss created the series and serve as executive producers.

And in case you need to properly prepare yourself before premiere day you can catch up on all previous seasons of Game of Thrones on HBO NOW and HBO GO.
