Game Of Thrones Season 4 Photos Released
With just over two months to go, Game Of Thrones fans have been given a glimpse of what is to come in season 4.
Despite the bloodbath at the end of the last series, many familiar faces will be returning to our screens.
The images show favourites such as Peter Dinklage's Tyrion Lannister, Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington.
The new series starts Sky Atlantic HD on April 7, a day after its premiere in the US.
It is based on the second half of A Storm Of Swords, the third book in George RR Martin's series, A Song Of Ice And Fire.
Some new faces are shown in the photos, including Daario Naharis, one of Dany's mercenaries and Prince†Oberyn Martell, or the Red Viper, and his paramour†Ellaria Sand.
Shot extensively in Northern Ireland, Croatia and Iceland, directors for the fourth series include Michelle MacLaren, who worked on Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and The X Files.
Fans' appetite for Game Of Thrones made it the most pirated show of 2013, according to TorrentFreak, with nearly six million people using file-sharing sites to download last season's finale.
