"Game of Thrones" Season 4 is almost here

HBO teases the next season of the hit series with its first official trailer

Mega-tease and huge flirt HBO has released the trailer for Season 4 of its hit series "Game of Thrones," which looks every bit as exciting as fans imagine it will be. King Joffrey is still evil and arrogant (he believes he has won the war!), but Daenerys Targaryen has a new world and everyone else needs to accept that or die, basically, and all the while a great danger is awakening North of the Wall.

As Tyrion Lannister puts it, "things are a bit tense right now."

"Game of Thrones" Season 4 premieres on HBO April 6 at 9 PM EST.
