First official GAME OF THRONES season 8 teaser confirms premiere date

Game of Thrones

HBO has finally released the first official teaser for the final season of Game of Thrones! The short trailer, dubbed “Crypts of Winterfell” features the Stark children reunited surrounded by the ghosts of their fallen relatives.

The teaser itself features no footage from the season but it does confirm one very important detail. The show will return on April 14, 2019.

The final season of the epic series will run for only 6 episodes but rumours point to each running for a least 90 minutes. That would make this latest batch some of the longest running episodes of the series to date.

Check out the “Crypts of Winterfell” teaser below!

Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. The series airs on HBO in North America and Sky Atlantic here in the UK.
