The official premiere date is Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m.

The premiere date for the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" will be revealed before the show, according to the HBO post on Twitter.

To celebrate, Sky released a new 90-second trailer showing Jon Snow, Sansa and Arya Stark walking into a dimly lit crypt to find concrete memorial statues of themselves.

Kuchar was flawless on day three, posting four birdies without dropping a shot, to be the 54-hole leader at 18 under. The four-time Ryder Cup team member won a bronze medal for the United States of America at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Along with the premiere date, HBO also released an nearly 2-minute long teaser, "The Crypts of Winterfell". Finally, the Stark siblings will know that Jon is not Ned Stark's illegitimate son but his nephew and a Targaryen.

There will be six episodes to come in the Game of Thrones saga, meaning the franchise should end in May 2019.

The major source of excitement for fans will be seeing Jon and Arya reunited. 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. The video is not actual season eight footage - instead it's similar to past teasers HBO has crafted, ones that address coming themes of the season. The service had previously said only that the show will return in April. "It's an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honors very much what [author George R.R. Martin] set out to do - which is flipping this kind of story on its head".
