Here’s When the Final Season of ‘Game of Thrones’ Begins

Here’s When the Final Season of ‘Game of Thrones’ Begins

Details on the final season of Game of Thrones are of course scarce.

HBO announced Sunday that its signature series will begin its final season on April 14.

In the 90-second teaser, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) meet in Winderfell's underground crypt, where they look at the statues of their ancestors.

The premiere date for the hit HBO show was revealed in a new teaser titled Crypts of Winterfell, which premiered before the premiere of True Detective moments ago.




This eighth season is only six episodes long, which means the finale should be on May 19 if HBO doesn't skip any Sundays.

The official premiere date is Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. Finally, the Stark siblings will know that Jon is not Ned Stark's illegitimate son but his nephew and a Targaryen.

Season eight will premiere at 1pm, April 15, Sky said. There is plenty to speculate on, but what we do know for certain is that Season 8 will consist of a mere 6 episodes, however, they will all be extended in length. Winter has come, and that wind from an ice dragon's wings is cutting straight to the core of Game of Thrones fans everywhere. As all three Stark kids stand in front of their own crypt statues, they turn as a frost creeps down the hallway. It's not footage from within the final season but more like an original promotional ad.
