The hit fantasy drama returns to Sky Atlantic on March 23
A new teaser trailer for Game Of Thrones season three has been released – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch.
The 40-second trail, titled ‘Chaos’, features glimpses of some of the main characters in HBO’s hit fantasy drama including Robb Stark (Richard Madden), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage).
Season three of the fantasy show will feature 10 individual episodes – the same number as seasons one and two – but each episode will last slightly longer.
Talking recently to Entertainment Weekly, show runner Dan Weiss explained: “There’s almost another full episode’s worth of extra minutes spread across the season. One of the great liberties with HBO is we’re not forced to come in at a specific time. We can’t be under 50 minutes or over 60, but that gives us a lot of flexibility.”
Echoing his partner, producer David Benioff promised a “super-sized season”, then added: “Last year we had a lot of 52-minute episodes. This year is a lot of 56, 57.”
Season three will begin on HBO in the US on March 31, 2013 and airs in the UK the day after on Sky Atlantic. Guest stars during the new run will include Coldplay‘s Will Champion, confirmed to be playing a drummer, and Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol, whose role is unknown.
