HBO has FINALLY announced the exact date for the return of Game of Thrones! After a year or more of speculation, we finally get to see some new video and this new trailer for the upcoming final season.
In the trailer, we see Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) walking towards each other in the crypts, passing by statues of those they have lost along the way, and that ominous wave of ice coming toward them... This is, I'm sure, the first of many trailers and teasers to come for the new season... And I can't wait!
The final season of the Emmy Award-winning drama will be six episodes, according to HBO. Interesting note that the final season will premiere on April 14, 2019, almost exactly 8 years since its initial release (April 17, 2011)!
According to Bryan Cogman, co-executive producer of GoT, the final episodes will showcase the most elaborate battle yet and that, "it’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death."
Here's hoping that the final season will wrap up all the loose ends and we finally get to see the conclusion to this story that's been 8 years in the making!
