HBO just released a series of recap teasers before Game of Thrones season 8, and then subtly confirmed when the eighth season will be released.
If you missed it, here it is again.
That’s right, Game of Thrones season 8 will be released on April, 2019. So, you better keep your April open and watch out for the final season.
The network also tweeted the video with the caption, “Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death. All #ForTheThrone,”

Season 8 will have 6 episodes rather than the usual 10 episodes. But each could extend to a feature length episode, probably at 80 minutes or probably longer.
“Two hours per episode seems like it would be excessive, but it’s a great show, so who knows?” HBO’s Casey Bloys said.
Here are the other recap teasers released by HBO:
There will be a Prequel
Game of Thrones may be ending, but a prequel is in the works. It will take place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones. This prequel series is actually one of five GoT projects that are in the pipeline.
