Game of Thrones season 8 premiere date revealed in new trailer

trending 15/01/2019

The premiere date of Game of Thrones season eight has been announced by HBO with a new trailer.

It will launch in the US on April 14, which for Kiwis means Monday, April 15.

In the new trailer, surviving Stark children Jon, Sansa and Arya walk through the crypt in their hometown of Winterfell.

Voices of their deceased loved ones - immortalised as statues in the crypt - speak to the trio as they walk past each.

However, things grow all the more terrifying when the Stark children come face-to-face with statues of themselves - before frost starts filling the crypt, presumably signalling the incoming forces of the White Walkers.

HBO announced the premiere date of the final Game of Thrones season with the trailer just ahead of the premiere of True Detective season three in the US.

In New Zealand, the hit fantasy series is broadcast on Sky TV's SoHo channel.
