In the northern hemisphere, our winter might soon be drawing to a close, but in the world of Westeros, the long winter is coming. The latest teaser of Game of Thrones's second season reminded us of that highly anticipated fact with a peek at what will befall our heroes at the hands of "our" favorite (and less favorite) villains.
In just a week, the clip has now been watched by 4.8 million viewers, making it the most popular teaser of any HBO series on YouTube (if we exclude motion picture adaptations). Narrated by Lord Varys, it features Tyrion Lannister, portrayed by Golden Glodes and Emmy Awards winner Peter Dinklage, as well as fan-favorites Jon Snow and Arya Stark.
HBO's critically acclaimed fantasy drama — renewed right after its series premiere viewed by 2.22 million — steadily grew in popularity until the outstanding finale. Slated to premiere on April 1 at 9 p.m. EST, the second season will be another test for the series as it should move the violence and fantasy one notch higher, being based as it is on "A Clash of Kings," the second book of G.R.R. Martin's book series "A Song of Ice and Fire."
