'Game Of Thrones' Season 2 Trailer: Sneak Peek Of The HBO Drama (VIDEO)

It may be getting warmer outside, but the chill is in the air for fans of HBO's critically-acclaimed series, "Game of Thrones." The network finally released the anticipated trailer for Season 2 of the fantasy drama.

The trailer, narrated by Varys (Conleth Hill), features some of our favorites from the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros-- Jon Snow and Arya -- and some of our... well, not-so-favorites. King Joffrey, we're looking at you.

Looks like Tyrion, played by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage, is finally ready to play the game. Sharpen your daggers, "Game of Thrones" fans, the cold winds are rising, and we all know what that means -- winter is coming.

The cold winds are upon us on Sun., April 1 at 9 p.m. EST. Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes. Check out the trailer below.
