‘Game of Thrones’ Sets Official Date for Beginning of the End

We officially know when the final season of Game of Thrones will premiere!

Along with the premiere date, HBO also released an nearly 2-minute long teaser, "The Crypts of Winterfell".

The eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" begins April 14.

On Friday, HBO revealed that the premiere date would be announced ahead of Sunday's True Detective Season 3 premiere, thereby building anticipation once again for what we were already anxiously awaiting.

Syria withdrawal already under way

Mortal Kombat 11 Gameplay Reveal Arrives Next Week - Here's The Cover Art
Should this project find favor with the fanbase, I'm guessing it'll finally gloss over Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins. This trailer has led many fans to assume that we'll get some sort of time travel gimmick in Mortal Kombat 11 .

Jon, Sansa and Arya meet at the end of the crypt, where they come face to face with statues of their own. It's hard to say which bomb will drop first - that Cersei has no intention of helping them fight the dead, that Dany and Jon are actually related, or that as the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, Jon is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. The new season is said to feature six episodes, each running as high as 90 minutes long. There is plenty to speculate on, but what we do know for certain is that Season 8 will consist of a mere 6 episodes, however, they will all be extended in length.

Titled The Long Night, the show is expected to take place as much as 5,000 years before the events in Game of Thrones, meaning there will be no Targaryens or familiar locations in Westeros. It's not footage from within the final season but more like an original promotional ad.

Game of Thrones returns on April 14.
