Game of Thrones Season 8 Official Tease: Crypts of Winterfell

Preparations are fully underway for the release of Game of Throness eighth season in April, with Twitter revealing 20 new posters for the series.

There are also unique hashtags for each character available on Twitter by tagging a characters name (for instance #GreyWorm).

HBO has been reticent to reveal much about what to expect from the final season of Game of Thrones – although that has not stopped fans from theorising.

A cryptic trailer teased a huge reveal relating to the heritage of Jon Snow (Kit Harington), while also resurfacing a rather shocking theory about Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright).

Game of Thrones returns to HBO and Sky Atlantic for its final season on the 14 April. Read everything we know about the upcoming season here.
