Game of Thrones season 8 finally has a premiere date!
HBO has finally dropped a teaser trailer for the final season of its acclaimed fantasy drama revealing that the highly anticipated season will be premiering in April 2019.
The promotional video features some of the series’ key moments including the Battle of the Bastards, Cersei Lannister’s Walk of Shame, Arya Stark witnessing the execution of her father Ned Stark, Joffrey and Tomen’s deaths and much more
“When you play the Game of Thrones, you win…or you die,” Cersei explains in the voice-over. “There’s only one war that matters… and it is here,” Jon Snow adds.
While the video does not reveal any new footage, it reads, “Every battle. Every betrayal. Every Alliance. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death,” and ends with “#All for the throne.”
The final six episodes have a lot of questions to answer, and while cast and crew have been extremely careful not to reveal even the smallest of details, GoT director David Nutter let slip an interesting factoid, saying, “Season 8 episodes will all I think be longer than 60 minutes. They’ll be dancing around the bigger numbers, I know that for sure.” According to Entertainment Weekly, when Nutter was asked to describe the final season in three words, he chose, “Spectacular, Inspiring, Satisfying.”
“It’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death,” co-executive producer Bryan Cogman told the outlet.
