HBO's Game of Thrones releases new season 8 teaser

Posted January 15, 2019

In typical HBO style, never opting for a simple statement, the network unveiled a short teaser announcing the Thrones season 8 premiere date and offering viewers a glimpse at what's to come in the final six episodes of the series.

The new Game of Thrones teaser that debuted ahead of Sunday night's True Detective premiere opened with Jon Snow (Kit Harington) walking solemnly through the crypts of Winterfell and seemed to hint at a long-awaited reveal.

There's not much to glean from the all-too-short clip: it takes us inside the Crypts of Winterfell, where it appears that the Stark children - Sansa, Arya, and Jon Snow - will reunite to face a common threat. A feather also falls from her statue's hand.

Now, thankfully, we actually have a release date for the eighth and final season, which will hit our screens on April 14 of this year. The teaser ends with Jon, Sansa, and Arya united against their unseen foes. Are you looking forward to Game of Thrones season 8?

Winter storm hits US Midwest leaving at least five dead
The Missouri Department of Transportation warned residents not to travel in the storm if it wasn't necessary. Officials across the region urged travelers to stay off the roads, warning of delays up to eight hours.

Finally all three children meet and proceed further into the crypt. Lyanna then gave birth to Jon - whose real name is Aegon Targaryen - before she died, making him a trueborn Targaryen.

Sansa had a different version of events in her head but virtually no one in Westeros knew that the two love birds had eloped and Lyanna fell pregnant with Jon.

The Long Night is nearly over - well, for us at least.

To begin with, she clearly has enemies on every side with the White Walkers threatening every single person in the Seven Kingdoms but aside from this, she has also reneged on her promise to help Jon and Daenerys fight the army of the dead.

Under the current regulations, men can legally divorce women with a verbal statement and get the decision finalised in a court. Saudi Arabia has adopted a new regulation that requires courts to notify women by text message if they've been divorced.

Now that we know when winter will arrive, fans cannot only start preparing for the show's return but also the end of an era-both in and out of Westeros.

One thing fans definitely know about the final season is that it's only going to be six episodes long - however, before you get to upset the HBO CEO Richard Plepler has told audiences that each new episode is like "watching a movie".

Fans are now speculating that the cold something is, in fact, Bran.
