When 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premieres in Australia


Based on the title "Official Tease: Crypts of Winterfell", it seems this will be part of a series of teasers - this one focusing on Arya Stark, Sansa Stark, and Jon Snow. The implication is all three may be facing their doom.

As Sansa, Arya and Jon are looking at their statues, the torch blows out, Lyanna's fallen feather gets covered by ice and Arya and Jon wield their swords. So long as Jon keeps his ties to the Starks, the group of them stand a better chance at surviving the fight ahead.

The last season will consist of six episodes as per the latest buzz.

As fans know but Jon Snow is not yet aware, the King in the North is not actually the illegitimate son of Ned Stark, but rather the child of Ned's sister, Lyanna, and Rhaegar Targaryen.

Anything goes on Game of Thrones, so the human Stark kids fighting their brother who's trapped inside a horrifying humanoid shell very well might happen.

The hotly-anticipated last outing of the epic fantasy drama series was confirmed by its American broadcaster HBO to air on April 14, and it will be broadcast in the United Kingdom at 2am the following day on Sky Atlantic. This is obviously a sign of the oncoming war between the living and the dead as the Night King leads his army of White Walkers south to conquer Westeros and then the rest of the known world.

Mark your calendars, Game of Thrones fans, because the premiere date for Season 8 has finally been revealed. Should we be more anxious about Bran or the fate of seven kingdoms?

Now that we know when winter will arrive, fans cannot only start preparing for the show's return but also the end of an era-both in and out of Westeros.

This is without a doubt my most anticipated piece of entertainment releasing in 2019 and I can't wait to see how they end things for the show.

The question of who will live and who will die is, of course, a big one heading into season 8.

Game of Thrones will return for its eighth season on April 14.

What does quickly become clear, however, is that Winter is most definitely coming.
