The network also released a new teaser in which Arya Stark, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark can be seen facing an unknown icy threat at the family crypt in Winterfell.

After this teaser, we certainly need MORE!

Game of Thrones will air on the 15th April on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.

Game of Thrones returns on April 14.

Kammenos leaves ruling coalition in Greece ahead of Macedonia name vote
Since 1991, Athens has objected to its neighbour being called Macedonia because it has a northern province of the same name. The Macedonian parliament has amended the constitution to rename the country as the Republic of Northern Macedonia.

The teaser depicts the underground crypt of Winterfell, with Sansa Stark, Arya Stark and Jon Snow facing their own statues as frost approaches through the tunnels.

Season eight will comprise of only six episodes, as opposed to seven from season seven and 10 from all the previous seasons. We do know the final installment will consist of six episodes that are basically like movies, HBO boss Richard Plepler said. Notably, we hear Ned telling Jon: "You are a Stark - you might not have my name, but you have my blood". This line is from the season 6 finale, when Lyanna made her brother Ned vow to take care of her and Rhaegar Targaryen's son - Jon. Something really cold, making even the feather - originally placed in the hand of Lyanna Stark by Robert Baratheon in the pilot episode - turn frosty.

Game of Thrones will stream and screen in Australia exclusively on FOX SHOWCASE, Foxtel's premium On Demand drama destination. "It's an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honours very much what (author George RR Martin) set out to do - which is flipping this kind of story on its head".

This scene possibly foreshadows the deaths of the Stark Family, which is further backed up when the tomb becomes engulfed in ice and fog - heralding the arrival of the White Walkers and the Night King.
