Game of Thrones Season 8 release date confirmed, teaser trailer revealed

Game of Thrones released an all-new season 8 teaser video Sunday night, plus revealed its official premiere date.

Along with the premiere date, HBO also released an nearly 2-minute long teaser, "The Crypts of Winterfell".

Season eight of the highly anticipated series will screen here on the pay TV network's SoHo channel on the same day as it screens in America, 1pm on April 15.

The premiere date was unveiled in a new teaser trailer, which aired prior to tonight's season three debut of True Detective.

Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) are wandering in the crypts of Winterfell, where once their father Ned Stark was seen having a conversation with Robert Baratheon. The crypt teaser begins with heavy overtures of Jon's true Targaryen parentage as he walks past Lyanna Stark's crypt.

Chico overdose: One dead and 12 in hospital after 'mass drug overdose'
Chico Police Chief Michael O'Brien got a 911 call from inside the home in the 1100 block of Santana Court, pictured above. They were also treated at the hospital, the chief said, adding they were released and are in good condition.

With the season premiere coming April 14, that should place the finale episode at May 19 (if HBO doesn't skip any weeks of episodes).

Jon and Arya haven't seen each other since series 1, when they had quite a strong brother-sister relationship, so the reunion will no doubt delight fans no end.

In a brief clip of the new seasons, released last week during the Golden Globes, HBO showed Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow arriving in Winterfell.

Game of Thrones returns Sunday, April 14 on HBO. "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".
