New True Detective and Game of Thrones Teasers

It may have been a slow summer for HBO originals, but the upcoming year is looking like fire with these hot new trailers.

Above, we have a sneak peek at True Detective season 3. After Mcconaughey’s and Harrelson’s outstanding performances in season 1, HBO is looking to redeem its second season flop with a new cast and a new story. If the trailer is any indication, this season is likely to offer a more somber and unsettling tone.

But that’s not all! We also got a few new Game of Thrones glimpses. It’s been a long time coming, but the final season is close. Are you still dealing with those GoT withdrawals? Us too. Fortunately,  you can check a few new teasers above.
