HBO just dropped a trailer of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 and we can't keep calm
The official trailer for season 8 of epic fantasy series Game of Thrones was released and fans cannot keep calm! After months of waiting, viewers finally got their first extended look at the show’s final season, reported The Verge.

HBO announced the release of the trailer, with the show’s Twitter account simply saying, “The trailer is here”.

As you might expect, it's a fairly sombre, stirring affair, bringing along (dragon-filled) new clips that offer ominous warnings about the war to come. The clip begins with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) panting in the darkness, briefly speaking of the threat approaching from the White Walkers and the army of the dead. “I know death. He’s got many faces. I’m looking forward to seeing this one.”

The trailer shows numerous leading characters preparing battle at the Stark’s stronghold, including Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

Game of Thrones’ previous season ended with the revelation that the White Walkers now have their own dragon which they captured from Daenerys, which is sure to wreak destruction on the people of Winterfell.

Jon had tried to warn Cersei about the fight, but she made it very clear that she wasn’t interested in helping him defend the kingdom unless he was ready to bow down to her as Queen.

The clip also provides a glimpse at the rest of the Stark children, including Bran and Sansa who also seems to be preparing for war against an ‘undead’ army.

Game of Thrones returns on April 14.
