Official word on Game of Thrones has been light since HBO teased that the final season would be released in the first half of 2019.

Game of Thrones fans have been counting on HBO bringing the series back to a traditional spring debut after the previous seventh season arrived last summer. However, while there's still plenty of time before the show returns, the premium cable network has revealed the first footage from the upcoming season. Airing ahead of the hauntingly handsome Sharp Objects finale, the sizzle reel supposedly features our first glimpse at the fantasy epic's eighth season, but it was thrown in with a bunch of footage from Season 7.

The Huffington Post story goes on to point out that though the Emmy Awards deadline for nominations is a tricky enough beast, exceptions have been made before.


In order for a show to be eligible for the Emmy nominations next year, it must air a majority of its episodes by May 31. Some people assumed that meant April, but they were basing that on rumors that were probably wrong; HuffPost has an interview with visual effects supervisor Joe Bauer that suggests the premiere will more likely be in May/June.

"We're going to be toiling away on season eight until May of 2019, so it's eight or nine months away", he added.

Game of Thrones, how we missed you. "The situation changes every week".

The Game of Thrones final season has been said to be six episodes, with HBO programming chief Casey Bloys describing them as "epic" and that "fans are going to love it". In the meantime, I hear Game of Thrones video games are good lately. The clip shows Jon Snow and Sansa Stark reunite after Snow's battle with the White walkers in season seven.
