In India, Game of Thrones Season 8 will be streamed online by Hotstar. Luckily, the wait is nearly over since we now know the premiere date of the eighth and final season! After almost seventeen months of waiting for a new episode of the beloved fantasy series (suffering through our own version of author George R.R. Martin's Long Night), we finally know when Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere, thanks to a new teaser featuring the Stark children who have gathered at Winterfell walking through the crypts.

The teaser chooses to focus on the Starks at Winterfell - confronted with the ghosts of their past, while facing an uncertain future that could very well lead to their deaths. A variety of tidbits have been revealed, including that there will be six super-sized episodes, perhaps as long as movies. According to the new teaser released by the makers, the show will premiere on April 14. Jon passes by the funeral statue of his mother, Lyanna Stark, while Sansa and Arya walk pass through Catelyn and Ned Stark. This line is from the season 6 finale, when Lyanna made her brother Ned vow to take care of her and Rhaegar Targaryen's son - Jon. The three reach at the end of the hallway, where they see their own statues and frost approaches them.

Game of Thrones returns on HBO April 14 in the US.


HBO isn't getting out of the "Game of Thrones" business.

Many have noticed that while the troika was shown in the footage, their brother Bran was not there with them. This is obviously a sign of the oncoming war between the living and the dead as the Night King leads his army of White Walkers south to conquer Westeros and then the rest of the known world.

Just six episodes of the show remain, although it's expected that many of them will run for longer than hour.
