HBO has given us a (very) quick glimpse of the highly anticipated eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, among other upcoming programming for 2019. including Watchmen, and Veep among others. It was part of a new spot which aired during the 76th Golden Globe Awards Sunday night on NBC.
The clip teases Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen’s arrival in Winterfell, and Dany’s first face-to-face encounter with Sansa Stark.
“Winterfell is yours, your grace,” a tense Sansa tells Dany. Brienne of Tarth, guarding Lady Stark, and Ser Jorah Mormont, accompanying his Khaleesi, also appear in the footage. There was a quick glimpse of the same scene in an earlier GoT promo.
When Game of Thrones last left off, Westeros was on the brink of its deadliest war yet. Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and others were working together against the Army of the Dead, led by the vicious Night King. Their show of unity may prove too little, too late, however; in the final scene of season seven, the White Walkers burst through the great Wall of Westeros, finally launching their march on the Seven Kingdoms.
Other programming teased in the promo are True Detective, Watchmen, Euphoria, Succession, Veep, Barry, Catherine the Great, Divorce — a lot packed in to a minute ten seconds.
The eighth season of Game of Thrones premieres in April 2019. No specific date has yet been released.
