HBO have FINALLY confirmed when the most hotly anticipated season of any TV series EVER will be hitting our screens.
It was revealed in the first teaser trailer for the upcoming final season, with the hashtage #ForTheThrone.
The new trailer teases us with a look back at some of the show’s most epic moments, all leading to Season 8’s upcoming White Walker showdown.
We don’t know the SPECIFIC date in April that we’ll be watching the first episode of the season, but we do know that if you’re watching the show in the UK, it’ll be simulcast at the exact same time as the US on both Sky Atlantic and NOW TV, so you don’t have to panic about pesky spoilers.
The new season will be shorter than any other before it, with only six episodes. HBO programming president Casey Bloys has said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that these will be “six one-hour movies" on TV. He revealed, "The show has proven that TV is every bit as impressive and in many cases more so, than film. What they're doing is monumental."
