First 'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Tease Officially Released

Game of Thrones Season 8 Teaser Has a Battle of Ice and Fire

Game of Thrones will be broadcast on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in April 2019.

Winter is almost here! HBO dropped our first look at Game of Thrones Season 8, and if this 39-second trailer is true to what's coming, we're not prepared.

HBO released the new tease at the São Paulo Expo in Brazil for the Comic Con Experience.

Though there's no new footage of the show, we see an intense war waging between ice and fire.

All good? Let's point out a few things you may have noticed. Most notably, the lion of Lannister burns up and eventually the ice and fire erupt in the middle of the table.

Apart from this, in season 7, when Jamie Lannister goes to fight Daenerys, the script details, "the brother he loves races towards his probably death at the hands of the queen Tyrion also loves".

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss returned to executive produce the final season alongside Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield, with Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin serving as co-executive producers.

Game of Thrones season 7 ended with the Night King breaking down The Wall by melting it with the dragon's fire. There, they premiered a new handsome teaser for the final season.

Game of Thrones will be followed by a prequel spin-off which is expected to premiere as early as 2020 and stars Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse (Poldark).
