Game of Thrones season 8 trailer shows fire and ice spectacularly colliding

The new season is only five months away

Game of Thrones final season teaser trailer released

With Game of Thrones eighth and final season fast approaches (only five months away), HBO has released another teaser for the upcoming six episodes.

There’s no new footage on offer. Instead, the clip offers a cinematic look at Daenerys’s Dragonstone battle-board as it becomes engulfed in flames and ice.

HBO has revealed few official details regarding the upcoming season, with the release date currently being “April 2019”.

Teasing the final episodes, which will reportedly showcase the show’s most elaborate battle yet, co-executive producer Bryan Cogman said: “It’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death.”

As the show will conclude this season, the network is already prepping prequel spin-offs for what has undoubtedly been its most successful TV show of all time.

The ending of Thrones will usher in a new era for the cable network. New shows set to premiere over the coming year include Jordan Peele-J.J. Abrams horror drama Lovecraft Country, Kathryn Hahn comedy Mrs Fletcher and a “remix” of Watchmen from Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof whose acclaimed drama The Leftovers concluded on the channel in 2017.
