Winter is coming this summer! First teaser, release date of ‘Game of Thrones’ is out

Winter is coming to scorch the TV screens as ‘Game of Thrones’ is set to return for one last time on April 14 with its eighth and final season.

The wait is almost over, well not quite over, but now we know that the final season of the fiercely popular TV show Game of Thrones will begin airing April 14 onward, exactly three months from now.

HBO announced the release date of the final season along with its first teaser on Twitter on Monday. But the tweet had no more information accompanying the video other than the release date.

The teaser sets up an intriguing meeting of the Stark kids — Jon Snow, Sansa and Arya — reuniting in their family crypt at Winterfell. Viewers can hear messages their from dead family members Ned and Catelyn Stark as well as Lyanna Stark, Ned’s sister.

When the three reach the crypt’s end, they come face-to-face with their own statues. And as they look confused, a fallen feather starts to freeze and the crypt fills up with fog, cautioning that the winter is here.

Season eight has six episodes – each of which could run as long as 90 minutes. The shooting began in October 2017 and wrapped 10 months later.
