George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones was a phenomenal success earlier this year on HBO. Fans of the Song of Ice and Fire series are the most loyal literati out there, and the dedicated were ready to pounce on HBO if they didn't do Martin's original work justice. Luckily, the iconic author was on-hand to help work the book into a screenplay, and the initial season of the series surpassed all expectations. Peter Dinklage particularly stood out as Tyrion Lannister and earned himself an Emmy Award in September.
HBO is now gearing up to return us to the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros in the spring of 2012. That's a long time to wait, but luckily, the network has already started tossing teasers our way beginning with this first one, The Cold Winds Are Rising. Watch it above and then tell us: What do you think? Will Season Two be as good as the first?
