The OFFICIAL release date for Game of Thrones is announced

HBO has finally announced the exact release date for the final season of Game of Thrones.

Following more than a YEAR of speculation (they just love to keep us waiting, don't they?), the company revealed that the Emmy-award winning fantasy show will air on April 14 2019.

A trailer named Crypts of Winterfell was released, featuring Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Arya Stark, and we're GASPING.

The trailer was aired just before the third season of True Detective

It was estimated that the eighth and final season would make it to the screen after Big Little Lies season two, on April 28.

Sky Atlantic is expected to simulcast and broadcast the premiere the evening after, but luckily for us, the show is returning sooner than anticipated.

The countdown to the final six episodes of the cable network's biggest show EVER begins now.

Teasing the last few episodes of the hit show, co-executive producer Bryan Cogman said: “It’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death.”

The most incredible battle in the show's history will feature in the dramatic season, and we're SHOOKETH with anticipation.
