HBO drops first teaser of Season 8

HBO drops first teaser of Season 8

But Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is still ruling the Seven Kingdoms and is hellbent on keeping her power despite threats from snow-dwelling, baby-stealing monsters and another pair of incestuous star-crossed lovers.

The latest teaser for Game of Thrones has been released - and it has us so excited for the new season!

Though there's no new footage of the show, we see an intense war waging between ice and fire. That, or the PR team at HBO is really harping on the whole "A Song of Ice and Fire" thing (the name of the book series that the show is based on) before the series concludes.

HBO dropped the very first official teaser for Game of Thrones Season 8 this afternoon.

The teaser was first shown at a "Game of Thrones" panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. A statue of a lion is also engulfed in flames before the ice and fire meet in the middle.

If the result is dragonglass, it's worth noting that's one of the few ways White Walkers can be killed.
