Game of Thrones Season 8 release date confirmed, teaser trailer revealed

The season will consist of six episodes, which HBO chief Richard Plepler recently likened to watching six movies.

HBO announced that the megahit series will debut its eighth and final season on April 14. So without first ado, check out the Game of Thrones Season 8 trailer below. Perhaps Harington's face was just hard to accurately chisel, but could this alternatively symbolize the fact that Arya and Sansa will perish in Season 8, whereas Jon will live much longer?

The major source of excitement for fans will be seeing Jon and Arya reunited. Though this isn't a scenic reunion of the two, seeing the three siblings in one frame has got our emotions going full-tilt.

As the three Starks see their own images in the crypts they turn and see the cold of winter and the infamous White Walkers encroaching on them.

So when the crypt fills with icy mist in the teaser, and Jon and Arya both draw their swords? Fans might recognize that it's the very same feather that Robert Baratheon placed in her statue's hand in the series' first episode. Jon does have Stark blood flowing through his veins, but he's legally a Targaryen.

Game of Thrones' final run of six near-feature-length episodes starts April 14th.

Kevin Hart on Hosting Oscars: 'I Can't Do It This Year'
I shouldn't have to prove who I am, I shouldn't have to prove the levels of love that I am capable of giving. Among the possibilities organizers were pondering was to go "SNL-style" with a rotation of presenters.

Granted, this hasn't been officially confirmed but we'll press ahead and do the maths.

As fans know but Jon Snow is not yet aware, the King in the North is not actually the illegitimate son of Ned Stark, but rather the child of Ned's sister, Lyanna, and Rhaegar Targaryen. That feather remained there until Sansa Stark visited the crypts after returning to Winterfell and she found it on her aunt's memorial statue. In India, Game of Thrones Season 8 will be streamed online by Hotstar.

With the season premiere coming April 14, that should place the finale episode at May 19 (if HBO doesn't skip any weeks of episodes).
