For months the only information about Thrones' eighth and final season premiere was that it would be sometime in April, but now, along with a brand new trailer, we have a clear date and can start counting down in earnest. We do know the final installment will consist of six episodes that are basically like movies, HBO boss Richard Plepler said.
Season eight of the highly anticipated series will screen here on the pay TV network's SoHo channel on the same day as it screens in America, 1pm on April 15.
Jon, Sansa and Arya meet at the end of the crypt, where they come face to face with statues of their own. Finally, the Stark siblings will know that Jon is not Ned Stark's illegitimate son but his nephew and a Targaryen.
The major source of excitement for fans will be seeing Jon and Arya reunited. That represented a surge of more than 35% compared to the corresponding episode the previous season.
The final season video includes new footage, sort of.
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. As all three Stark kids stand in front of their own crypt statues, they turn as a frost creeps down the hallway.
In a brief clip of the new seasons, released last week during the Golden Globes, HBO showed Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow arriving in Winterfell. In the meantime, you can read INSIDER's key predictions for the final season here.
