HBO has officially released the trailer for season 5 of their blockbuster hit fantasy series Game of Thrones. The trailer hints at some of the new storylines that season 5 will revolve around particularly Tyrion, Sansa and Danerys’ storylines. Game of Thrones has been a major success for HBO in recent years being one of the highest rated dramas on television. A fantasy series based on a series of books called A Song of Ice and Fire by author George R.R, Martin Game of Thrones mostly eschews the magic and dragons trappings of the genre in favor of backstabbing and political intrigue.
The series has so far been following the plot of the novels but it is fast approaching the point of going beyond the novels with season 5 being heavily based on the series fifth book A Dance With Dragons and with no sixth novel set to release this year fans may well have to start avoiding the show in order to avoid book spoilers instead of the other way around.
