'Game of Thrones' Final Season Premiere Date Revealed

'Game of Thrones' Final Season Premiere Date Revealed

The new season is said to feature six episodes, each running as high as 90 minutes long.

For anyone who doesn't know, the third season of True Detective has been called a return to form for the hit HBO series.

The announcement of Thrones' premiere date comes just one week after fans were gifted with the first footage of season eight.

HBO isn't getting out of the "Game of Thrones" business. And of course, Jon will finally realise the truth of his parentage in the finale, that in fact he is not a complete Stark as he believes himself to be, but is half Stark and half Targaryen.

The major source of excitement for fans will be seeing Jon and Arya reunited. As all three Stark kids stand in front of their own crypt statues, they turn as a frost creeps down the hallway. The teaser ends as Jon, Sansa and Arya draw their blades and prepare themselves for a deadly fight.

Another prominent part of the teaser the the feather in front of Lyanna's crypt.

Along with the premiere date, HBO also released an nearly 2-minute long teaser, "The Crypts of Winterfell".

Last week, a blink-and-you'll-miss-it teaser clip of series 8 showed Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, appearing to have traveled to the North where she'll come face-to-face with Sansa in front of Jon. That represented a surge of more than 35% compared to the corresponding episode the previous season.
