All good things must come to an end — that includes the hit series “Game Of Thrones”.
HBO announced the release date of the final season with a teaser trailer before the premiere of “True Detective”.
Fans will have to wait until Sunday, April 14 (at 9/8c), to dive in. A full-length trailer will be released in due course to keep everyone’s interests piqued.
Not much is known about the eighth season but from the glimpses, we do know Jon and Daenerys will take control of the Stark ancestral home.
It will also involve longer episodes and a “brutal” fight scene that “makes the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park,” according to star Peter Dinklage.
Have no fear: Even once “Game of Thrones” is over a prequel is in the works. Naomi Watts will star in the show created by writer Jane Goldman and author/”GoT” co-executive producer George R.R. Martin.
