HBO has posted a 10 minute featurette outlining 11 new characters that will be making an appearance this third season.
Notable characters include Olenna Tyrell, Missandei, Mance Rayder, Tormund Giantsbane, Orell, Jojen and Meera Reed, Edmure Tully, Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion and Gregor Clegane.
As TG Daily previously reported, Thrones is the third most watched series in the network’s history, and will likely only grow in popularity from here on out.
As Rolling Stone points out, people are coming back to Thrones because the last season set such a high benchmark, especially with the incredible Blackwater battle, and people can’t wait to see if this season will hit another new level of awesomeness.
Indeed, showrunner David Benioff recently told Stone, “There’s not a one-hour, blow-out-all-the-stops battle, but it’s our best season. It’s a 10-hour movie with beginnings, middles and ends.”
