‘Game Of Thrones’ Releases Bone-Chilling Trailer, Release Date For Final Season

‘Game Of Thrones’ Releases Bone-Chilling Trailer, Release Date For Final Season

The final season of HBO's beloved fantasy drama Game of Thrones is all set to return this April, after a hiatus of nearly two whole years. No more split-second snippets, this is the real deal.

It shows Jon Snow, Arya and Sansa Stark in the crypts underneath Winterfell where their ancestors have been buried. At a point, Jon Snow passes Lyanna Stark's statue (his birth mother) and hears the voices of their dead family members.

Fans couldn't contain their emotions as they see Jon, Sansa, and Arya reunited after all these years.

In the final seconds of the grimmest teaser so far, frost descends, extinguishing the torch in Jon's hand, which gives an inkling of an icy fate beneath Winterfell.

The Indian viewers will be able to watch the season 8 premiere on April 15, 2019, either on Hotstar or Star World.

After holding serve to clinch the first set, de Minaur won four straight games in the second to seal the comfortable win. De Minaur breezed to a 6-3 6-2 win in just over an hour and a half in sappingly hot conditions at Homebush.

Now, we know when the announcement will come. Not only has director David Nutter confirmed each of the episodes will be over an hour long, but the series will end with what's being called the biggest battle ever seen on film or TV.

Mark your calendars, Game of Thrones fans, because the premiere date for Season 8 has finally been revealed.

While Arya and Jon draw their swords out, preparing to fight, Sansa - as usual - doesn't do much. Bran as the Night King, that is.

This final season of the long-running series will be six episodes long, as opposed to its previous standard 10 episode seasons. However, in Game of Thrones terms, that doesn't necessarily means they will die.

Another prominent part of the teaser the the feather in front of Lyanna's crypt. In the meantime, you can read INSIDER's key predictions for the final season here.
