The teaser that was released today doesn't actually show us anything from the new season but instead comprises a montage of some of the biggest, baddest moments from past Game of Thrones episodes. Taking to Twitter, the giant HBO show officially confirmed the release date of its final season.
Season 8 has to address a lot of questions.
As "Game of Thrones" prepares to take its bow, HBO is already planning for the next incarnation of the series. When we think of GoT, brief isn't a word that comes to mind.
It's also worth remembering that numerous actors filmed multiple endings, so while they think they know how it ends, the reality is only very few do, so we're just gonna have to wait and see what the Game of Thrones final season dishes up for us. While season eight will only consist of six episodes, as opposed to the usual 10, one of the directors has said that each episode will be of "feature length'".
The television adaptation of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels has become one of the most talked about shows in recent times.
Game of Thrones fans have spent the past 14 and a half months aching for intel on the return of HBO's epic tale, and we finally have something less vague than "early next year".
HBO isn't getting out of the Game of Thrones business. Nutter revealed the details during a Reddit AMA he did yesterday, saying that "Season 8 episodes will all I think be longer than 60 minutes". Fans from around the world are eagerly waiting to see the fate of Arya Stark, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, and others.
