A still from the new Game of Thrones Season 8 teaser trailer

The HBO fantasy drama will debut season 8 on April 14, 2019.

Along with the premiere date, HBO also released an nearly 2-minute long teaser, "The Crypts of Winterfell".

The promo shows the three Starks in the Crypts of Winterfell, where they pass the tombs of their dead relatives.

The fans have gone insane after the teaser and date were dropped. Especially since things don't seem to be looking up for the Stark siblings in it... But rumours have it that each episode will run an hour and half long.

The eighth and final season of HBO's Game of Thrones will premiere April 14th. Don't say we didn't warn you. In India, Game of Thrones Season 8 will be streamed online by Hotstar. The teaser ends as Jon and Arya took out their swords for the forthcoming slaughter. As they walk past the statues of their deceased family members (including Ned, Catelyn and Lyanna), they hear their haunting voices. If you haven't yet, it's a must-see.

HBO isn't getting out of the "Game of Thrones" business. And yes, we noticed that all of the quotes were about Jon. This had made us real anxious as to what will become of House Stark.

Obviously, we can't know for sure what Bran's absence here means, but I don't think we need to get quite that gloomy this soon.

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. Should we be more anxious about Bran or the fate of seven kingdoms?

The major source of excitement for fans will be seeing Jon and Arya reunited. This indicates the White Walkers have finally crossed the Wall. A frosty breeze invades the crypt, they turn back and draw their weapons. She just stands there, doing nothing. Surely fans will continue to speculate until the tension is finally released on April 14th.

Have something to add to the story?
