HBO have finally announced a release date for Game of Thrones. Season 8 will be released in April 2019, much to fans delight.
This will be the final season of the Emmy Award-winning drama. Filming officially began on October 23, 2017, and concluded in July 2018.
HBO have also released a teaser trailer for the show.
“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die,” Cersei says in a voiceover at the start of the Season 8 trailer. At the end, Jon Snow is heard saying “There is only one war that matters, and it is here.”
Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, as well as David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik, will be the directors for season eight.
The season’s six episodes will all have feature-length runtimes (80 minutes or longer) and were written by Benioff, Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
Co-executive producer Bryan Cogman said: “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.”
