'Game of Thrones' finally reveals Season 8 premiere date

Game Of Thrones’ Season 8 Finally Has A Release Date & A New Teaser Game of Thrones releases new season 8 teaser, official premiere date
Julia Gonzales | 14 January, 2019, 06:37

The eighth and final season of HBO's Game of Thrones will premiere April 14th.

Along with the premiere date, HBO also released an nearly 2-minute long teaser, "The Crypts of Winterfell".

HBO chose to tease that the announcement was coming in advance, then drop it on air prior to the third-season premiere of its crime drama "True Detective". "Winterfell is yours", Sansa said in the scene.

The final season video includes new footage, sort of.

Titled The Long Night, the show is expected to take place as much as 5,000 years before the events in Game of Thrones, meaning there will be no Targaryens or familiar locations in Westeros.

As the backup quarterback, Martell was 23-of-28 passing for 269 yards and scored three total touchdowns in 2018. He enrolled in classes and will reportedly ask the NCAA for eligibility to play in the upcoming season.

"The last season of Thrones seemed to be created to break us". As all three Stark kids stand in front of their own crypt statues, they turn as a frost creeps down the hallway.

While we don't know what's in store for Jon and the rest of our favorite living Thrones' characters, if the final season is anything like it was for the cast filming it, we're in for a brutal six weeks. Luckily, the wait is nearly over since we now know the premiere date of the eighth and final season!

In a brief clip of the new seasons, released last week during the Golden Globes, HBO showed Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow arriving in Winterfell.

The countdown to April 14, 2019 has officially begun. In the meantime, you can read INSIDER's key predictions for the final season here.
