HBO drops first teaser of Season 8

ThronesTeaser

The first teaser for the eighth and final season of HBO's Game of Thrones has finally arrived.

A short, under 40 second teaser, gives a feel of what to expect-the clash of ice and fire in the final season of the show.

Anyone who watches GoT has been patiently waiting for its return after last season's dramatic finale when the Night King brought down a section of the Wall and the two main protagonists, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, hooked up - then we found out they might be related.

Old trailers compiled footage from previous seasons, but this one is fairly straightforward; it shows a chill creeping into Westeros, freezing everything in sight (including a dragon), while fire fights it from the South. We see dragons being victims of ice (no more of that, we beg you) and proud Lannister lions being burned by fire.

And that run of odd bedfellows is set to continue in 2019, thanks to newly tapped hosting pair Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh . The Golden Globes are given out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and honor the best in television and movies .

Naturally, fans were excited about what it could all possibly mean.

Again, per VF: "In the show's pilot episode, the White Walkers clearly communicate in "inhuman shrieks" and 'a chilling sound like crackling ice, ' which echoes George R.R. Martin's description of their language in his books".

The teaser also confirms the next season will premiere in April 2019.

There, Benioff and Weiss revealed how they first imagined the series ending at the end of the third season. In the season finale previous year, the Night King rode on the undead dragon Viserion as he broke down a section of the wall with the White Walker army marching down south.
