Whoaa news for all the ‘Game Of Thrones’ fans! HBO has finally exposed the date of the premiere of GoT eighth and final season. The series will begin on April 14, 2019.
Confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. The season will run for six episodes and per episode could run as long as 90 minutes. The April premiere date will also make Game Of Thrones eligible for the 2019 Emmys.
The revelation was followed by a short eye-catching teaser that revealed the Stark siblings including Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Arya Stark walking through the Crypt of Winterfell, defying their own graves as the cold threat of the White Walkers approaches them.
Watch the Video Below:
In some earlier clips from the season, Sansa Stark can be seen welcoming Daenerys Targaryen to Winterfell and allowing her control over her family’s tribal land.
The seventh season of the show saw Westeros on the verge of its bloodiest war yet. Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, and other legendary stars within the Thrones canon were ready to cast aside their quarrels and work together toward attacking a common enemy, The Army of the Dead which is headed by the vicious Night King.
At the decisive scene of season seven, the White Walkers burst through the big ice Wall of Westeros, launching their march on the Seven Kingdoms, with Daenerys Targaryen’s zombified ice dragon in tow.
While all this takes place, Cersei Lannister, the queen of seven kingdoms, declines to set aside her own self-interest for the purpose of the endurance of the species. Towards the end, Cersei announces her plans to hire a mercenary company to kill the Targaryen forces and combined Stark.
While the Night King gives the greatest risk at the moment, it would be a grave mistake to discount Cersei’s deadly pettiness.
The season seven also proved that Jon Snow is the legitimate heritage as the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, which very possibly provides him the biggest claim to the throne if only by birthright.
