After almost seventeen months of waiting for a new episode of the beloved fantasy series (suffering through our own version of author George R.R. Martin's Long Night), we finally know when Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere, thanks to a new teaser featuring the Stark children who have gathered at Winterfell walking through the crypts.
Luckily, the wait is nearly over since we now know the premiere date of the eighth and final season! Directors for these episodes include: Miguel Sapochnik, who directed the iconic "Hardhome" and "Battle of the Bastards" episodes as well as "The Winds of Winter"; David Nutter, who directed the episodes "The Rains of Castamere" and the final two Season 5 episodes "The Dance of Dragons" and "Mother's Mercy"; and Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Second, it means the entire season will be eligible for the 2019 Emmy Awards, where it will undoubtably dominate the winners list.
When we last visited Westeros, it was in a precarious position as the Night King's wight army destroyed the Wall (with their very own undead dragon) and marched freely into Westeros.
It's safe to say that the final season of Game of Thrones has a lot to deliver and not a lot of time to do it, so let the countdown to the premiere begin!
The series is officially set to return on April 14 with the final six episodes that will serve as a conclusion to the hit fantasy series.
