'Game of Thrones' Final Season Premiere Date Revealed

The Night King will march on Westeros in April.                  HBO

HBO has finally announced that the final season of its hit series Game of Thrones will launch this coming April.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will air in April of 2019 on HBO.

Along with the announcement, a teaser reel was shared, but it did not contain any new footage, unfortunately. Still, the whole marketing push so far has been about looking back at the legacy the series has built and bringing it to a conclusion, a theme which this latest trailer full embraces.

While few details are revealed, the video shows key moments from past series and lets fans know when they can expect to see the much anticipated final season, which will be broadcast in the United Kingdom on Sky Atlantic and Now TV.

The final season is set to consist of six episodes that will wrap up this chapter of George R.R. Martin's fantasy saga - and there's plenty of story still to be told. Every fight. Every sacrifice.

The video teases, "Every battle".

HBO didn't specify the exact date in April, but if the show continues the pattern of airing on Sundays, the choices are April 7, 14, 21, or 28. GoT still, however, won an Emmy for Best Drama earlier this year, long after the season seven debut.
