Game Of Thrones return date confimed; new teaser hints at the fate of the Starks
It's been a long wait, but finally we'll learn the fate of Westeros when the show returns for its final six-part season this April. And after weeks of rumours we have a confirmed date too; season eight will debut on HBO in the US on April 14th, presumably making a 15th April air date on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
HBO have also released this atmospheric teaser set beneath the crypts of Winterfell and hinting at a deadly fate for the Starks. As for the absence of Bran, make of that what you will.
In the lead up to season eight we have been revisiting old episodes and you can check out our latest look back of season four's The Watchers On The Wall here.
