Luckily, the wait is nearly over since we now know the premiere date of the eighth and final season!

Sky TV has revealed the New Zealand launch date for the final season of Game of Thrones - and they're showing off a new trailer too.

In the teaser, Jon, Arya and Sansa Stark finally come together as a trio at Winterfell in a sequence that appears to predict their own deaths. However, HBO has promised that each of the six episodes will be longer and could run up to 90 minutes each!

Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the final season of Game of Thrones as we learn it.

HBO chose to tease that the announcement was coming in advance, then drop it on air prior to the third-season premiere of its crime drama "True Detective".

The final season video includes new footage, sort of. Finally, the Stark siblings will know that Jon is not Ned Stark's illegitimate son but his nephew and a Targaryen.

Game of Thrones returns on April 14.

Jon and Arya haven't seen each other since series 1, when they had quite a strong brother-sister relationship, so the reunion will no doubt delight fans no end. While it did not feature any new episodes in 2018, Game Of Thrones was still the most highly-pirated series of the year, going neck-and-neck The Walking Dead, which took the crown for the most-pirated show with new episodes in 2018.
