Game of Thrones series 8 release date confirmed alongside chilling teaser

14 January 2019

Luckily, the wait is nearly over since we now know the premiere date of the eighth and final season!

Three months before Game of Thrones' eighth and final season is set to debut, we have an official premiere date: April 14.

The Game of Thrones teaser released by HBO shows the Stark children returning home to reunite in the family's crypt at Winterfell. However, HBO has promised that each of the six episodes will be longer and could run up to 90 minutes each!

On Friday, HBO revealed that the premiere date would be announced ahead of Sunday's True Detective Season 3 premiere, thereby building anticipation once again for what we were already anxiously awaiting. One, it means we're likely going to get a real trailer for the final season soon, which means we'll finally get the first substantial new footage in over a year!

Season eight will premiere at 1pm, April 15, Sky said.

Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) are wandering in the crypts of Winterfell, where once their father Ned Stark was seen having a conversation with Robert Baratheon. The six-episode season will begin on April 14, 2019, so if there is no break during the season, the series finale will air sometime in May.

Seven hells, it's been a long hiatus for Game of Thrones fans! In the meantime, you can read INSIDER's key predictions for the final season here.
