Winter may be on its way out, but it is coming back to HBO in a few short weeks, and the cable network has offered a glimpse at what season 6 of Game of Thrones has in store.

A new extended preview of the sixth season focuses not on the show’s story itself, but the story of those behind the camera who bring it to life. So yes, don’t expect to find too many clues about what the new season has planned, but the video does showcase some of the locales, large-scale sequences, and more of what’s to come.

Of course, while the camera operators and others behind the scenes who make Westeros feel so real on screen are the focus of the video, a few familiar faces, like Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Jaime Lannister and Carice van Houten’s Melisandre, do make appearances. You won’t find out much about what awaits them, however, other than the intense staring the video includes as the production crew fashions scenes around them.

Watch the full behind-the-scenes video above ahead of Game of Thrones’ return on April 24. And for more, Sophie Turner recently revealed a massive spoiler (read at your own risk) and the new season has been teased with a Hall of Faces-themed set of posters.
