As we saw in the official trailer for Game of Thrones season eight, some scary shit is about to go down at Winterfell.
Now HBO has released a new teaser video titled “Aftermath” two weeks before the final season of the series arrives—a little under two weeks in fact. The video appears to show Winterfell after said scary shit has come and gone. And let’s just say…you should not go into this one expecting sunshine and rainbows.
You can check out the video, as well as a pair of promos HBO has also released titled “Together” and “Survival,” below.
A teaser for Game of Thrones season eight has been released by HBO.
The teaser doesn’t show any actual footage from the show’s final season, instead focusing on a meeting of ice and fire—the book series written by George R.R. Martin the show is based on, “A Song of Ice and Fire,” visualized.
It’s been a long, long wait for fans since Game of Thrones season seven came to a close over a year ago now. And while that wait will continue into 2019, as we learned in July, all we knew as of then was that it would be sometime in the first half of the year.
Now we have something to finally focus in on. HBO has announced that Game of Thrones season eight will arrive in April of 2019. The perfect time to kick off the show’s final season, considering that all but two of the seven seasons premiered in April. And one of those two began just one day before April.
HBO made the announcement with a video, which you can check out below.
We’ve known since the penultimate season of Game of Thronescame to a close at the end of August there was a chance that there would be no new episodes for the entirety of 2018, and that we might have to wait until 2019 for the final season to arrive at our eyes.
Now HBO has confirmed it: Game of Thrones season eight will be arriving in 2019. They’ve also confirmed how many episodes fans can look forward to seeing when the final season does arrive, and who’s writing and directing those final episodes. You can read HBO’s announcement below.
