'Game of Thrones' Final Season Premiere Date Revealed

Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones releases new season 8 teaser, official premiere date

Game of Thrones fans have been thrown another excruciating teaser by HBO ahead of the final season of the hit show. However, HBO has promised that each of the six episodes will be longer and could run up to 90 minutes each! It's hard to say which bomb will drop first - that Cersei has no intention of helping them fight the dead, that Dany and Jon are actually related, or that as the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, Jon is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Winter has come, and that wind from an ice dragon's wings is cutting straight to the core of Game of Thrones fans everywhere.

From season 7, we know the truth about Jon Snow's parents, which makes him a Targaryen, even though he doesn't yet know.
