Game of Thrones: New Season 2 Promo “The Cold Winds Are Rising”

Game of Thrones Season 2A few weeks ago, HBO gave us our first real look at season 2 of Game of Thrones. The cable channel released an “In Production” featurette with scenes from season 2 of the breakout hit (watch it here). But we had yet to see a real trailer for the new season.

All of that changed tonight, when HBO released its first official promo for Game of Thrones’ second season. The trailer is narrated by actor Stephen Dillane, who has joined the cast as Stannis Baratheon. Fans of the show will remember Stannis as King Robert’s brother (Stannis and Robert both have a younger brother, Renly). Stannis never appeared in the first season, but he was mentioned towards the end of the season in a rather important way. When Ned Stark realized that Robert’s “children” were not really his biological children, he insisted that Stannis take Robert’s throne as his next of kin. Before he was executed, Ned had sent Stannis a letter, informing him of the situation.

From what’s revealed in the trailer, it appears that Stannis is fully prepared to take the Iron Throne for himself. But I suspect he’ll find resistance among the Lannisters. Cersei, in particular, is worried that her son, Joffrey, could be displaced by Stannis’ legitimate claim. At the end of last season, Stannis proclaimed himself the King of Westeros and he’s fully prepared to strike down all those who would challenge his claim.

Watch a trailer below for season 2 of Game of Thrones. The show will return in April 2012.
