HBO has finally given the first glimpse of the most highly anticipated TV show of our time. Fans have been waiting for the eighth and the final season of Game of Thrones for a quite long. Still with 8-9 months to go the premium cable network released a small footage of the eighth season that is interspersed in a short video promo showcasing upcoming lineup for 2019.

To date, very few details regarding the final season of Game Of Thrones have been revealed. The makers have made it clear that final season will comprise of six episodes with each episode having a longer runtime (approx. 2 hours) as compared to earlier seasons. HBO and the makers have taken a plenty of time and are trying their best to deliver an ending that will leave all the fans awestruck. The creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have taken the necessary time to write the scripts for the final season which has currently outpaced the books written by George R.R. Martin, hence no one knows what this magnificent show holds for us.
The footage released by HBO mostly comprises of scenes from season 7 however we were able to capture a particular scene from the upcoming season. As we know that last season ended with Daenerys and Jon Snow heading towards Winterfell to reunite with Sansa Stark. The scene depicts Jon Snow and Sansa Stark hugging each other as they meet after a long time. The last survivors of the Stark family have a gargantuan task ahead of them as Night King marches towards them to take over Winterfell with ice-fire breathing dragon.

In amidst of all this, there is a small bad news that Game of Thrones season 8 might be a little delayed. If Joe Bauer, the VFX supervisor for Game of Thrones is correct in his estimation then the final season will arrive later than the season 7. In his recent interview with Huffington Post, he added that “We’re going to be toiling away on Season 8 until May of 2019, so it’s eight or nine months away. But the prequel is starting to shoot in February, at least the pilot. So we’ll still have quite a lot to do Season 8 when they’re beginning.”
We know that with little more wait and patience we are in for a thrill ride next year as first we will get our hands on Game of Thrones Season 8 which will be followed by its prequel series the same year. With our fingers crossed we hope that HBO delivers a hell of a finale that we will cherish throughout our lives.
