Game of Thrones final season to premiere in April 2019, HBO releases teaser
The much-awaited final season of HBO’s blockbuster fantasy period-drama Game of Thrones will premiere in April 2019, the channel announced on Wednesday.
The channel made the announcement while sharing a teaser video of the eight season on its social media platforms. However, the teaser is a compilation of some of the important events from the story so far and there is no new addition from season 8. But the makers reveal the premiere month towards the end of the video.
Sharing the teaser, HBO wrote, “Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death. All #ForTheThrone.”
HBO had released the first official photo from the upcoming season earlier in November. The image shows lead actors, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) hold each other as they look fiercely into the camera.
Talking about the climax of the show, its co-executive producer Bryan Cogman said, “It’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death.”
“It’s an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honors very much what (author George R.R. Martin) set out to do — which is flipping this kind of story on its head,” he added.
