Is Jon Snow really dead or not?
HBO released a teaser trailer for season 6 of “Game of Thrones,” in addition to a promo for all its shows that offers a little bit more footage of the highly anticipated drama.
In the trailer, the character of the Three-Eyed Raven (played by Max von Sydow) can be heard to say “We watch, we listen and we remember. The past is already written. The ink is dry.”
What follows is plenty of flashbacks, including that now famous scene of the death of popular character Snow, portrayed by actor Kit Harrington.
But it ends with a flash of the character Bran Stark (half brother to Snow) appearing to go into a trance before he says, “They have no idea what’s going to happen.”
Though the teaser is only 41 seconds, a preview promo for HBO’s upcoming season shows a few other snippets.
Keep your eyes open, the scenes last just three seconds. Daenerys Targaryen looks grim, Ramsay Bolton rides –possibly hunting Theon and Sansa — and Cersei Lannister kisses King Tommen (skip ahead to the two minute mark).
Though the teaser trailer focused on Jon Snow, the Bastard of Winterfell isn’t spotted in the HBO promo.
“Game of Thrones” is one of the most popular series on HBO (which is owned by CNN’s parent company) and the show is also featured prominently in a tweet from the network on what to watch for in 2016.
Season 6 of “Game of Thrones” premieres in April 2016.
