Over the past few weeks, HBO has been getting fans fired up for the return of their epic series Game of Thrones by releasing exclusive images, a teaser, and announcing the premiere date for the upcoming season. The network continues to build anticipation with the release of the official trailer for the sixth season. In less than 24 hours the trailer has amassed 30 million views, breaking the previous record set by the trailer for season five which garnered 27 million views.
For the first time the show’s narrative path is surpassing author George R.R. Martin’s novels, so HBO is going to extreme lengths to prevent any leaks or spoilers. HBO will not be releasing any screeners for press ahead of the April 24 premiere; which means no one outside of the project has any idea of what’s to come. Fans still have a little over a month until the premiere, so in the mean time watch the first official trailer below and get ready for what looks like one hell of a sixth season.
