‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 to Premiere in April

HBO has announced the final season of “Game of Thrones” will launch this April.

The news was revealed in a promotional video released by HBO on Tuesday, which teased that all of the conflict fans have seen in the show thus far has all been building to this final confrontation with the White Walkers.

Though no specific date in April is offered in the video, it nevertheless gives fans their first indication of when they can expect the highly-anticipated eighth and final season of the show that has become a global phenomenon. It will also no doubt come as a welcome surprise to the show’s loyal viewers, who will recall they had to wait until July last year when Season 7 premiered. Seasons 1-6 of the series all bowed in April or late March.

Will have to start my rewatch of seasons 1-7. Great show but with so many great shows being pumped out now it'll probably be the last time I watch it.

Sounds like the big battle with the white walkers is in episode 3.

Not sure what to think.

Does seem like that after building for 8 seasons to humans vs white walkers that the white walkers are going to end up only being a side story.

If the whole conclusion to this is simply about stealing power from Cersei its going to be a massive let down.

Rewatched episode 1. Season 1's episode 1. Feels like a prequel. So many dead characters. It truly has been an epic series. Bits felt like the first hour of The Fellowship of the Ring if exclusively aimed at adults. Jaime pushing Bran out of the tower as good as I remember it.

Yeah I'm in the process of rewatching the whole lot before the final series too.

Only halfway through S1 so far, forgot how brilliant some of those menace filled conversations are when everyone is playing politics early in the piece.

Another teaser trailer


It also lists the season's air date as April 14 (April 15th in Australia, obviously)
Someone in the comments writes that they can see Bran...I cant see Bran...can anyone else?

Google says in season 1 king baratheon placed the feather on Lyanna’s hand.

Then again it would be brilliant if the feather might just be something to throw everyone off and mean nothing.
