If you caught the SAG Awards on Sunday night, then you may have been pleased to see the cast of HBO's medieval drama Game of Thrones gathered at the nominees' table (the show lost to Boardwalk Empire). Now, there's even more reason to get excited: a new trailer for the second season has been released, about two months before the show premieres.

"I understand the way this game is played," says Emmy and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage at the end of the minute-long teaser. Fans have been waiting for the series, based on the popular fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin, to return since the first season finale in June. But they've still got some waiting to do: Game of Thrones comes back to HBO on April 1.
