Let the countdown begin, megafans.

Game of Thrones will OFFICIALLY air its eight and final season in April 2019. The HBO phenomenon aired its seventh season in August 2017, so there will have been an almost two-year gap.

For the feverous fanbase, that's 20 months too long…

Season eight will also run for six episodes, which is one episode fewer season seven, but never fear because each episode will run for as long as ninety minutes.

Imagine the tension… we can barely handle 60 minutes of such high-paced tension and pure visual spectacle. 90 minutes could have us fainting multiple times from sheer SHOOKETH-ness.

By premiering the April date, this allows Game of Thrones to remain eligible for the 2019 Emmys. The last season swept up nine awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, a major deal in the realm of television.

The HBO announcement came in the form of a new video broadcasting the launch of a final season campaign entitled  #ForTheThrone.

The video is as powerful as you might imagine considering the show is famed for its gruesome battles, dramatic deaths and revenge in every form.

Some of the most violent highlights from across the seven seasons are included in the clip, including the infamous Red Wedding (we STILL AREN'T OVER THIS) and the King's Landing wildfire attack.

The end of the seventh season left Westeros on the brink of its deadliest war yet, in case you have miraculously forgotten. The finale was one of the most watched TV episodes in history, and we can still hear the gasps.

Fan favourites such as Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and other prominent characters within the fantasy canon must learn to throw aside their differences in order to fight a common enemy: the Army of the Dead, led by the vicious Night King. 

The Army of the Dead have already begun marching after destroying the wall and taking control of a dragon, turning it to ice. WE WERE WAILING.

So you know, casual saving the world from massive bloodshed and death kinda vibe. The usual.

"Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death. All for the Throne."

Save the date, people. It's gonna be emotional.

Let's get real, Tyrion Lannister is arguably one of the best characters GoT has.

His wit, backstabbing and drunken antics have earned him a special place in our fangirl hearts. 

And the role would be nothing without actor Peter Dinklage, who won an Emmy last night for best-supporting actor. 

However, rumours surfaced that the actor didn't want the part – which he quickly put to bed.

Last night, backstage at the 2018 Emmys, Peter said the claims were "nonsense."

“How does that rumour get started? I had some concerns maybe it’s filtered down into some sort of rumour that I didn’t want to do it," he asked.

Peter has embodied Tyrion since 2011 and explained how the producers reassured any doubts he may have had about the part.

“But when I met Dave (Benioff) and Dan (Daniel Brett Weiss) for the first time with Carolyn Strauss, another producer on the show, (it was) so many years ago in LA here, they told me about it briefly.

“Then I, before I met them and then I came in with some concerns about this genre, having seen many… pieces, because I wasn’t familiar with the books, so I wasn’t familiar with the complexity of Tyrion at that point because unfortunately before this character, many times people my size weren’t complicated enough for me to be interested in doing it."

“I had done it one or two times before and it didn’t grab me but they relieved my concerns very quickly”, he added.

The HBO series, based on George R.R. Martin's books also brought home an Emmy for the best drama series.

The win comes despite heavy criticism from fans and critics about the last season of the addictive telly. 

Regardless of your feelings about season seven, we know you'll be glued to the screen for the final chapter, which will air next year.

Winter is coming ladies and gents. 



Congratulations are in order for Peter Dinklage; he and his wife are expecting their second child.

According to People, the Game of Thrones star and his wife Erica Schmidt are going to welcome a new baby this year.

The pair attended the opening night of The New Group’s All the Fine Boys in New York, an off-Broadway play Erica wrote and directed.

She wore a floral, ankle-length gown and black boots, and looked absolutely glowing.

The couple already have a five-year-old daughter together, and we're delighted their adding to their brood.
