Game of Thrones unveils season 8 premiere date, new teaser trailer

Game of Thrones unveils season 8 premiere date, new teaser trailer

It's all come down to this.

After almost seventeen months of waiting for a new episode of the beloved fantasy series (suffering through our own version of author George R.R. Martin's Long Night), we finally know when Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere, thanks to a new teaser featuring the Stark children who have gathered at Winterfell walking through the crypts.

The premiere date for the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" will be revealed before the show, according to the HBO post on Twitter. With Westeros standing on the brink of an abyss, it's hard to say who's going to emerge from the coming war alive. The teaser chooses to focus on the Starks at Winterfell - confronted with the ghosts of their past, while facing an uncertain future that could very well lead to their deaths. The only thing in the army's way was The Wall, which the reanimated dragon burned down, giving the White Walkers an opening to invade. One, it means we're likely going to get a real trailer for the final season soon, which means we'll finally get the first substantial new footage in over a year!

The network held true to its promise and delivered on a proper look at what fans can look forward to in the season when it premieres on April 14th.

The premiere puts the series finale date at May 19.
