Winter is coming this spring.
HBO is finally revealing when season 8 of Game of Thrones will begin. On Sunday, HBO released a new teaser for Games of Thrones that announced the first episode will air April 14. The season 8 teaser, called Crypts of Winterfell, was released on YouTube and played before the third season premiere of True Detective.
The teaser depicts Jon Snow, Sansa and Arya Stark walking through a crypt that includes three statues bearing their likenesses. TechCrunch won’t spoil what comes next. Watch below.
Fans of Games of Thrones have been waiting more than a year for the HBO series based on George R. R. Martin novels to return. Last January, HBO broke it to dedicated fans that Game of Thrones wouldn’t be returning until 2019.
The season seven finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf,” aired on August 27, 2017.
HBO didn’t provide any other details about season 8, including if episodes would be longer than 60 minutes. HBO has previously said the final season would have six episodes.
