Eastern on HBO, Collider reports.

Three months before Game of Thrones' eighth and final season is set to debut, we have an official premiere date: April 14.

Game of Thrones is based on George R.R. Martin's A Song Of Ice And Fire, but has since moved beyond the events in his novels. HBO previously released a short teaser trailer for the season, which fans have been awaiting for two years. In a one minute and 44 second teaser released Sunday, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) are seen in the crypts of Winterfell.

The PC industry is driven by consumer demand in the fourth quarter, but a rocky stock market and volatility hampered demand. The top three vendors were able to boost their market share and Lenovo claimed the number one spot followed by HP and Dell.


Game of Thrones returns on HBO April 14 in the US. They then come upon memorial statues of themselves as the crypt begins to turn icy cold, presumably as the Night King nears. The signal of the White Walkers causes Jon and Arya to draw their blades, anticipating the coming fight.

This final season of the long-running series will be six episodes long, as opposed to its previous standard 10 episode seasons.

The footage shows Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen meeting for the first time, which we imagine is super-chill and not awkward or threatening for anyone involved!
