The final season begins on April 14th…
Fans can rejoice as we finally receive an official trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones. A teaser was released in January, leaving fans waiting for more. Check out the full trailer below.
The final season completed initial filming back in July. This season will only have six episodes but will compensate by having each one be over an hour long, which hopefully will keep up the pace as it all comes to an end.
Game of Thrones is adapted from the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ book series, by writer George R. R. Martin.
While Game of Thrones will soon be gone for good, a prequel series is in the works. HBO has described the sequel as, “Taking place thousands of years before the events of ‘Game of Thrones,’ the series chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend … it’s not the story we think we know.”
Naomi Watts has been cast in the lead role for this prequel series. HBO has described Watts’ character as, “a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret”. Her character has yet to be named, leading many to believe that the role will reference a major family in the Game of Thrones universe.
The 8th and final season will begin airing on April 14th 2019.
