HBO’s hit fantasy series, Game Of Thrones, is perhaps best known for its merciless killing of popular and beloved characters. This show does not play favourites. It never has. And if there has been this much carnage up until now, the eighth and final season is sure to be a bloodbath.
Not much has been released about Season 8, and Thrones fans aren’t that surprised. To say that this last season has been secretive would be the understatement of the century. Thrones filmed multiple fake endings to the show, and to this day, very few members of the cast and crew know which ending is the real one! All of this secrecy, of course, makes this new official trailer all the more exciting and terrifying.
On Sunday night, HBO, sticking to their word, not only announced the premiere date of the eighth season of Game Of Thrones, but also a trailer. This is our first real look at what Season 8 has to offer, and honestly…things are looking more grim for the Starks than they have in years.
We watch as Jon, Sansa, and Arya head down to the family crypt, one by one. They walk past their ancestors, past Eddard and Catelyn, and finally, as they join together, they reach the end of the crypts, where 3 new statues stand. 3 statues for 3 Starks.
That’s right. Jon, Sansa, and Arya come face to face to themselves, carved in stone. And as they stare in shock and horror, a chill sweeps across the stone. Everything slowly gets covered in ice as the winds of winter roll in. They look on, each preparing themselves for whatever is coming. But before we see anything more, the trailer fades to black.
This confirms it. The final season of Game Of Thrones will be the darkest yet. And we are not ready!
Watch the first full trailer for Game Of Thrones Season 8 down below.
