The first official trailer for Game of Thrones Season 6 is finally here!

“He’s gone.” And with that, HBO has released the first official trailer (a red-band one) for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones.

While no one was expecting this one today (myself included), I can say that I’m really excited to see HBO giving the fans what they’ve been clamoring for ever since that awesome teaser trailer was released a few weeks ago. It was about time, show.

The first and foremost thing in the trailer is Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) death and how it affects our characters at The Wall, especially Melisandre (Carice van Houten) and Davos (Liam Cunningham). 

It also features most of the key players in the game of thrones, including Dany (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Arya (Maisie Williams), Theon (Alfie Allen), Cersei (Lena Headey), Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright), and more.
