With just over a month to go before the globally successful HBO show Game Of Thrones returns to our screens, social media – notably Twitter – went into a united state of excitement earlier this week with the arrival of a new trailer.
Since the last season ended, HBO have been teasing viewers about what happened to fan favourite Jon Snow (Kit Harington) as well as what the series of posters and images they’ve released might mean. Now, with this final trailer, which was viewed 30 MILLION TIMES in one day, they’ve not only caused a frenzy among the shows’ fan-base but also left them with a number of questions as to what to expect when the show returns in April.
The trailer also introduced those unfamiliar with Chris Issac’s “Wicked Game” to an updated rendition courtesy of James Vincent McMorrow and that too earned itself a number of plaudits.
Check out a few of the reactions on Twitter below.
