Winter is nearly here: HBO has just dropped a mind-blowing 90-second-long Game of Thrones season 8 teaser, which is giving fandom the creeps. The feather takes us back to the very first season of "Game of Thrones" when Robert Baratheon visited these same crypts and left it there on Lyanna's grave because she was the only woman he ever truly loved.

Game Of Thrones has made stars of many of its cast members, including Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Lena Headey, who will all reprise their roles for the last outing.

HBO isn't getting out of the "Game of Thrones" business.

The premiere date was unveiled in a new teaser trailer, which aired prior to tonight's season three debut of True Detective.

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.

We knew the show would return in April of this year, but tonight HBO revealed that the final season of Game of Thrones will officially premiere on April 14, 2019.

So what do we know about what's to come?

There's also a new teaser, set within the tombs at Winterfell.

Expect to see the saga to unfold across six episodes, each over an hour long. They then come upon memorial statues of themselves as the crypt begins to turn icy cold, presumably as the Night King nears. With the haunting music from the always-great Ramin Djawadi, and the slightly ominous tone, the teaser goes heavy on symbolism, bringing with its lots of clues for the final six episodes. A press release confirms they will be "movie length episodes".

There must've been some kind of deal brokered here because in the trailer Sansa is seen saying to Daenerys: "Winterfell is yours, your Grace".
