HBO drops first Game Of Thrones season 8 trailer

In teasing the show's eighth and final season, which premieres April 2019, it looks like HBO chose to take on the A Song of Fire and Ice bit pretty literally.

Game of Thrones will be followed by a prequel spin-off which is expected to premiere as early as 2020 and stars Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse (Poldark).

HBO unveiled the trailer at the São Paulo's Comic Con today and it's enough to get fans ready for winter to come around more than ever. The above video is bittersweet in a way because it's a sign that we are actually getting closer to the release of Season 8, however, absent from the video is any actual footage from the show's upcoming swan song.

The trailer shows a sweeping map of Westeros with a statue of a wolf being taken over by snow.

And the HBO hit released the very first teaser for the final season Thursday.
