Are you going through Game of Thrones withdrawal? Don't fret. The HBO fantasy returns next month with its highly anticipated third season. The network's announced that a new trailer for the show will premiere Friday, Feb. 22.
HBO's turning it into a multimedia event. The footage won't debut online or even on HBO — that honor goes to ABC. Talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! has first dibs on the new promo. Talk about an exclusive.
It turns out that Kimmel is a huge fan of the series, so he's the perfect guy to usher in its return.
He joked, "I am so excited about this trailer, even I might watch my show."
After its initial East Coast airing, the 60-second spot will immediately appear on the official Game of Thrones YouTube channel.
Game of Thrones is based on the popular book series A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin. The Emmy- and Golden Globe Award–winning drama chronicles an epic struggle for power within a vast and violent fantasy kingdom.
The returning cast includes Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Michelle Fairley and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Also, be on the lookout for newcomers like the legendary Diana Rigg, Clive Russell, Nathalie Emannuel and Kerry Ingram.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on ABC. Game of Thrones returns Sunday, March 31, at 9/8c on HBO.
