nullWinter may be here but winter is also coming. See what we did there? "Game Of Thrones" season three is a mere two months away, and after playing coy with some cryptic teasers, HBO has pulled the curtain back hard, dropping over twenty new images from the forthcoming season, spread across seven episodes. No, there aren't any spoilers in here as they are mostly tight character shots, but fans will want to sit up and take note.

The ensemble is expanding with some new faces popping up, and here's what you should be keeping an eye out for below: Ciaran Hinds as Mance Ryder, the King Beyond The Wall who's getting ready to enter Westeros with some Wildlings; Dianna Rigg as Lady Oleanna, grandma of Margaery and Loras Tyrell, and the red priest Thoros played by Paul Kaye. There's undoubtedly more, and until we get a proper trailer, these pics will have to suffice for now.

"Game Of Thrones" returns on March 31st.
