Game of Thrones season 6 had it’s premiere in Los Angeles last night. A select group of people, sworn to secrecy, were allowed to watch the first episode which is titled ‘The Red Woman’.
The episode was written by showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and directed by the returning Jeremy Podeswa. The official synopsis is below:
“Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again.”
There’s only two weeks left to wait until the rest of the world gets to see it on April 24th/25th. Today HBO have released a second trailer that runs for 2 minutes and has plenty of new footage that wasn’t shown in the first trailer last month.
Watch the second trailer for Game of Thrones season 6 below:
If you want to avoid any kind of spoilers you probably shouldn’t watch the trailer at all. If you’re desperate to know more about Game of Thrones Season 6 then you’ll be wanting to watch the trailer multiple times as there’s a lot to take in.
Here’s what we’ve spotted so far:
0:00 – The trailer starts off showing The Onion Knight, Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham), stood ready to fight with Longclaw, Jon Snow’s sword.

0:11 – A quick shot of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) walking down the steps of the throne room at Meereen.
