‘Game of Thrones’ debuted a very short teaser for Season 8.
As fans eagerly wait for the premiere of the eighth and final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the network treated fans a small glimpse of the upcoming season – a very small glimpse.
As with the premiere of Season 7, the first images to be seen in a promotional video for the premium cable network in the coming 2019 line-up. Buried in the images of the shows like “True Detective,” “Big Little Lies,” “Barry,” “Veep” and “Sharp Objects” was the smallest eye on “the Throne” characters Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) to embrace.
The moment only lasts a second, and it is difficult to recognise if the video is rife with images from the previously aired Season 7. However, as Entertainment Weekly notes, when Jon Snow hugs Sansa, it happens in Winterfell, not Castle Black, where they previously shared a sibling hug in Season 6. As a result, this counts as the first real footage of “Game of Thrones” Season 8.
The tease comes at a difficult time for “Thrones” fans, as news surfaced earlier this week that the final season may not debut until the second half of 2019, despite the early rumors that the show would premiere early in the year. This means that there can be two years between the penultimate and final seasons of the hit fantasy drama.
You can look at the video, which features the first look at “Game of Thrones” Season 8 below.
