Game of Thrones Season 8 to premiere on April 14

Adjust Comment Print

Game of Thrones' final run of six near-feature-length episodes starts April 14th.

This eighth season is only six episodes long, which means the finale should be on May 19 if HBO doesn't skip any Sundays.

HBO made the announcement ahead of True Detective season three's premiere, along with a new and chilling Stark-centric teaser, which you can find below.

Though this glimpse likely doesn't show any actual footage from season 8, it does bring back three powerful Starks: Jon (Kit Harington), Arya (Maisie Williams), and Sansa (Sophie Turner). Hopefully, Bran can make it to the Stark family reunion because as every Game of Thrones fan knows, people you love tend to die. The GOT fans have been eagerly waiting for the final season since August 2017. As they walk past the statues of their deceased family members (including Ned, Catelyn and Lyanna), they hear their haunting voices. Jon pulled out his sword to confront something, as frost begins to take over.

As Jon is walking through the crypt, he passes a statue of Lyanna Stark, which is Ned's sister and Arya and Sansa's auntie.

Game of Thrones is based on George R.R. Martin's A Song Of Ice And Fire, but has since moved beyond the events in his novels.

This new teaser, however, is their best work to date, and, as we grow closer to April 14, a full-length trailer shouldn't be too far off. Is this an actual clip from Season 8 or just a promotional teaser? Winter is coming and it's on April 14.

Season 7 ended with Jon finally crossing paths with his aunt, Daenerys Targaryen.
