On Friday, HBO teased the arrival of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, revealing that the season's trailer would arrive just ahead of Sunday's (January 13th) showing of True Detective. However, HBO has promised that each of the six episodes will be longer and could run up to 90 minutes each!
Sky's Soho channel will screen Game of Thrones season eight twice, each Monday, when the season starts on April 15.
Recently, co-executive producer Bryan Cogman said that the final season "is 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".
After spending months teasing us with quick peeks, HBO has finally given us a proper glance at what's in store for the final season, which premieres in the U.S. on April 14. The two haven't seen each other since the second episode of season one, when Jon gifted Arya her precious sword, Needle.
The major source of excitement for fans will be seeing Jon and Arya reunited.
Game of Thrones returns - we can finally say it - April 14, 2019 with the first of six episodes of the final season. They then come upon memorial statues of themselves as the crypt begins to turn icy cold, presumably as the Night King nears. It's not footage from within the final season but more like an original promotional ad.
