The past speaks to the future of Winterfell in the first full teaser for the final season of HBO's "Game of Thrones", finally premiering Sunday, April 14.

HBO announced the date ahead of the premiere for "True Detective" season three.

The eighth season of the show will feature six lengthy episodes, promising never-before-seen grandeur and gore. The final season of the critically acclaimed show is drawing near and we're all prepping ourselves for the most epic battle in TV history. At a point, Jon Snow passes Lyanna Stark's statue (his birth mother) and hears the voices of their dead family members.

When the good people at HBO throw us a Game of Thrones-related bone, you can bet that we'll pick incessantly at said bone until all possible clues have been extracted.

The teaser-trailer doesn't offer much in terms of spoilers for the season but it certainly gave us chills. They then come upon memorial statues of themselves as the crypt begins to turn icy cold, presumably as the Night King nears.

And finally there are the words from Ned himself as he reminds Jon that Stark blood runs through his veins even if he doesn't carry the family name.

Fans have been waiting since August 2017 for the return of the hit fantasy show, based on the "A Song of Ice and Fire" books by George R.R. Martin. Speculations have been all over the internet suggesting which character will get to sit on the throne in the final episode and which character wouldn't make it to the series' finale.
