'Game of Thrones' Final Season Premiere Date Revealed

'Game of Thrones' Final Season Premiere Date Revealed

Game of Thrones will air on the 15th April on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.

As all the three children walk and finally come to a halt before their own statues, they seem petrified by what appears to be the oncoming onslaught of the White Walkers. According to the new teaser, the show will premiere on 14 April.

While GoT Season 8 will only be six episodes total, which is down from seven last season and the usual ten in all prior seasons, each episode will reportedly play out like an entire feature film. The final season has fewer episodes - only six episodes - than Game of Thrones fans are used to, so maybe the brief snippet is appropriate.

In typical eerie style, the three can hear messages from dead family members Ned and Catelyn Stark as well as Lyanna Stark, Ned's sister/the mother Jon never knew.

Probably one of the highlights of the teaser was when both Jon and Arya draw their swords and went forward to protect Sansa.

In case you're wondering from where the feather came from, Robert Baratheon had placed it on Lyanna's statue when he came to Winterfell in the first episode.

Jon has yet to find out he's half-Targaryen and half-Stark, but that revelation will surely be a major part of his storyline on the coming season.

As Game of Thrones comes to an end, though, HBO has already begun production on its prequel, reportedly titled The Long Night. "Winterfell is yours", Sansa said in the scene. "It's an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honours very much what (author George RR Martin) set out to do - which is flipping this kind of story on its head". HBO explained the whole thing in a Making of Game of Thrones article posted on May 2, 2015.
