'Game of Thrones' Final Season Premiere Date Revealed

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

That means that right before the premiere launches at 9 p.m. EST, HBO will announce the official Game of Thrones season 8 premiere date. Before the premiere of the new season of True Detective, HBO aired a brief video showing three of the four remaining Starks, which the series has followed, then revealing the April 14 premiere date for Season 8. The only thing in the army's way was The Wall, which the reanimated dragon burned down, giving the White Walkers an opening to invade.

Details on the final season of Game of Thrones are of course scarce.

Knowing the premiere date is exciting news for two reasons. The stunt reflects how the pay channel - like CNN, a unit of WarnerMedia - intends to leverage its most-watched show and "Thrones'" avid fan base to help launch other programs leading up to and during its finishing run. 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.

It's confirmed that the final season will premiere in 13 weeks' time with the promise of a chilling reunion between Jon Snow and Arya Stark.

HBO kicked off the year with calculated Game of Thrones hype, starting with a four-second clip snuck into an ad during the Golden Globes.
