The Wait Is Over as HBO Announces Release Date for ‘Game of Thrones’ Final Season

The wait is finally over for Game of Thrones fans, as HBO have announced that the new and final season of the hit fantasy drama will air this coming April. 


In a tweet introducing the hashtag #ForTheThrone, the official Game of Thrones twitter account posted a trailer with the preface ‘Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death. All #ForTheThrone.’ However, it is important to note that the trailer is not a teaser, and features footage from previous seasons, highlighting the struggles that will ultimately culminate in Season 8. 



Season 8 airing in April means HBO are sticking to their promise of releasing it in “the first half” of 2019. 


Entertainment Weekly notes that later today we will see “posters highlighting a moment from each of the main characters’ pasts.”
