After a seemingly eternal wait – or Long Night, if you will – following the conclusion of season 7, Game of Thrones fans are finally getting a taste of what’s to come.
We now know the eighth and final season will hit our screens in April 2019, and HBO has kept the hype train rolling forward by dropping the very first teaser.

While it doesn’t give us a sneak peek at any new footage, the symbology alone is enough to have us all giddy with excitement.
The final season will feature just six episodes, although each will reportedly be significantly longer than usual. With an average budget of A$21 million per episode, we can only hope this season will make “Battle of the Bastards” look like a picnic on the beach.
