HBO’s 2013 Year-Ender with First Clips from Game of Thrones Season 4

By Jacob Klein on Dec 16, 2013 to Game of Thrones Trailers

Well we’re coming to the end of another great year of HBO greatness.  Emmys have been won, records have been challenged and we’ve all been more than entertained.  Towards the end of the year HBO always drops a mega-trailer with clips from shows that aired that annum along with tiny peaks at upcoming programs.  Often new seasons are confirmed and/or we’ll get a glimpse of upcoming shows for the first time.  

This year the big news were a handful of shots from Game of Thrones season four!  Check out the trailer for yourself now:

Awesome stuff coming up, right?  If you want to see it in HD, big screen glory it’s available on demand for some so check your local listings or just watch HBO tonight around 9PM and we suspect you’ll find what you’re looking for.  Here’s one Game of Thrones shot for the road.  We’ll let you replay the rest over and over and over:


A couple things we thought were interesting.  The first shots from The Leftovers, a new semi-sci-fi series coming next year, a few quick shots of the new San Fran startup series: Silicon Valley, a promo shot of the new John Oliver HBO weekly, and of course confirmation of new seasons of VICE, Real Time, True Blood and all of the rest.

One sad note is the lack of THE NEWSROOM season 3.  We know HBO is in talks with Sorkin and star Jeff Daniels in terms of scheduling and we know how hard that can be.  Daniels seemed confident a while back on Twitter but HBO has yet to make it official.  Will the show take a year off to accommodate schedules?  Ratings held steady and the show has a loyal fan base as well as some awards to its name.  We’ll keep you updated there but this trailer confirms that a Newsroom season 3 is still not officially on the books.

Check out our series premiere schedule for all the information we have on exact air dates on some of the series you just saw above.

UPDATE: We actually stumbled upon this one just now so take a good hard look… over and over and over:

what is the song playing in the game of thrones season 4 trailer 2????

Wha is the name and artist of the song playing on the HBO 2013 year end trailer

What song is playing during new the hbo boxing promo? Mostly piano in the beginning.

What song is playing in the background for the boxing trailer/commercial Boxing’s Best of 2013?

I think it’s “Disappear” by Mikky Ekko. He also did the duet with Rihanna, “Stay.” Great song for this slideshow! Can’t wait for spring!

whats the name of the song in the background? its awesome!

Maybe it is because I am too in the know but I wasn’t really surprised by anything in this Yearender clip. The only show forthcoming that I was not aware of being as far along as it apparently seems to be is SILICON VALLEY.

Though I am quite interested in the season ahead I’m afraid that it is not because of this video, but I can fully understand why people would be excited via this clip. I guess I have been reading to many press releases and development tidbits that it ruined the surprise.

Updated with a Gif showing the Game of Thrones stuff.

“Tell me something about yourself, Joffrey.. what type of man you are..”

I’m wondering if we’ll eventually get second seasons of Family Tree, Hello Ladies, and Getting On. I’ve really enjoyed all three of these shows (thus far, in the case of the latter) and hope HBO can find a way to keep them going. Not too surprised or upset about The Newsroom, even though I did like the show. The ending of the second season didn’t exactly feel definitive, but in a lot of ways it did feel like a somewhat natural conclusion to a few of the story threads. And this year we said goodbye to Enlightened, Eastbound & Down,… Read more »

Haven’t heard anything about the three shows you mention first. Of course you’ll probably hear it here first if it happens :)

Yep. LOTS of new shows this year, it’s crazy actually. Hoping a few of them really stick. With TB heading out, BWE on it’s final 1 or 2 seasons and now maybe the Newsroom getting delayed or cancelled we’ll need em!

i can’t find the music you said–disappear by mikky ekko, can you help me ?

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO stoked and pumped for Season IV of Game of Thrones. I already posted this to my FB page, timeline, Twitter and blog spot. Yes, I am an enthusiastic fan!! :)

I think the newsroom will not return this year. HBO has four new original series and two are dramas. I am disappointed.

What is the song?!?

It’s disappear by Mikky Ekko.
