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

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Trailer Teases an Epic End, Reveals Premiere Date

The final season of Game of Thrones returns on April 14. No more split-second snippets, this is the real deal. The teaser finds Sansa, Arya, and Jon in the crypts of Winterfell, passing statues of Ned, Lyanna, and Catelyn.

Jon Snow's real mother Lyanna Stark is the first voice we hear as a feather falls from her statue before landing on the ground. Usually, the crypt is a place of safety where they can go speak to their ancestors and their dead father, Ned.

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.

HBO announced the date ahead of the premiere for "True Detective" season three.

This alone tells us that the final season will be shifting a lot of focus back to the Starks.

Actor Kit Harrington arrives for the world premiere of the television fantasy drama "Game of Thrones" series 5, at The Tower of London, March 18, 2015.

Sunday calls for highs in the mid-30s and overnight lows in the lower 30s with a 50 percent chance of wintry mix then snow. Forecasters expect several inches of snow elsewhere in New Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania before the storm ends.

After spending months teasing us with quick peeks, HBO has finally given us a proper glance at what's in store for the final season, which premieres in the USA on April 14.

But soon, the icey advance of the Night King envelops the crypt, and swords are drawn.

The teaser doesn't have any new footage of the finally season, but it's still a cool way to tease what's to come.

The official Game of Thrones Twitter account is where the news broke on when fans can expect the announcement.

The last series will be shorter than the previous 10-episode seasons, clocking in with just six, though each will be longer than normal.
