New Game of Thrones trailer: Direwolves, dragons, war and more!

HBO has released the biggest teaser yet for season two of Game of Thrones, and it's safe to say winter is back and war is coming.

As expected, the trailer is heavy on action and intrigue, with everything from back-stabbing to epic battles teased in the 1:50 clip. Plus, it shows off direwolves and dragons! The first season was stellar, and judging by the clips here, season two is looking even better.

The teaser was first released for subscribers on HBO Go, but it didn't take long for a copy to get out into the wild.

Based on George R.R. Martin's acclaimed fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire, the show has become one of HBO's biggest hits. Season two is slated to include 10 action-packed episodes.

That April 1 premiere date can't come soon enough.
