WATCH: 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Gets an Air Date and New Teaser
The air date for the final season of Game of Thrones has been revealed, meaning we can mark April 14, 2019 in our planners.
A new teaser trailer aired on HBO last night (January 13), showing Jon (Kit Harington), Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) assemble in the Winterfell crypt as a frost approaches.
If only there was a neater, snappier phrase for "a frost is approaching," eh?
It's been a year and a half since season seven left us reeling, but the saga will finally reach a conclusion — and winter will finally come — in the eighth and final season.
The last season is just six episodes long, but each episode is rumored to be about 90 minutes long, the same length as a movie. HBO boss Richard Plepler has even gone so far as to call each episode "spectacular:"
"It's a spectacle," he recently told Variety. "The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, 'I'm watching a movie.'"
So cancel all your plans: Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere on HBO on April 14, 2019, with each episode following every Sunday thereafter.
Until then, watch the fearless leaders of BBC America's Dynasties defend their own thrones in the series premiere this Saturday at 9/8c.
