The new key art for the “Game of Thrones” fifth season has arrived to help promote the upcoming fifth season of HBO’s epic fantasy.

Set to premiere April 12, the new season of the wildly popular series adapted from the work of author George R.R. Martin will introduce a large roster of new characters as it continues to follow the mixed fortunes of the key houses of Westeros.

The provocative image shows the looming figure of a dragon in the mist looking down over Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) aboard a ship.

A recent trailer for the season showcased an interesting conversation between Tyrion and Varys (Conleth Hill), suggesting that the disgraced dwarf might help the Seven Kingdoms install the right monarch on the Iron Throne.

“The Seven Kingdoms needs a ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name,” Varys says.

“Good luck finding him,” Tyrion replies.

“Who said anything about him?” Varys counters.

The series recently became the first television show to be presented when two of last year’s episodes were screened in the large-scale theatrical format for a limited run.
