'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Premiere Date Revealed

The first teaser of the final season of the popular show, Game of Thrones, has dropped online.

We officially know when the final season of Game of Thrones will premiere! The first official teaser features the Stark siblings - Sansa, Arya and Jon Snow. However, HBO has promised that each of the six episodes will be longer and could run up to 90 minutes each!

"Winterfell is yours", Sansa said in the scene. Finally, the Stark siblings will know that Jon is not Ned Stark's illegitimate son but his nephew and a Targaryen. It was previously revealed that Season 8 would also host eight new characters.
