HBO dropped a new promo for the show's upcoming eighth and final season on Thursday, revealing that while we've known winter is coming for a while, fire's here as well.

The trailer shows a sweeping map of Westeros with a statue of a wolf being taken over by snow.

The eight season of the popular fantasy drama will premiere in April, nearly two years after season seven.

The teaser was first shown at a "Game of Thrones" panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Fire engulfs a lion figure (a nod to House Lannister), and at the end of the clip, the two elements clash in the middle, likely representing a pretty epic battle in the series' final 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.

Summer Bunni , the woman who Cardi B's husband, Offset , allegedly cheated on her with, has tearfully apologised to the rapper. Summer regularly posts selfies, often wearing very little in the images, to her followers.

Apart from this, in season 7, when Jamie Lannister goes to fight Daenerys, the script details, "the brother he loves races towards his probably death at the hands of the queen Tyrion also loves".

"Game of Thrones" returns to HBO in April. "It's an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honors very much what [author George R.R. Martin] set out to do - which is flipping this kind of story on its head". There, they premiered a new attractive teaser for the final season.
