The latest Game of Throne trailer teases the series' final season

Irene MckinneyDec 07, 2018

Old trailers compiled footage from previous seasons, but this one is fairly straightforward; it shows a chill creeping into Westeros, freezing everything in sight (including a dragon), while fire fights it from the South.

Winter is almost here!

HBO dropped a new promo for the show's upcoming eighth and final season on Thursday, revealing that while we've known winter is coming for a while, fire's here as well.

All good? Let's point out a few things you may have noticed. The short clip was tweeted out with the words "Fire and ice" and hinted that the final season will be all about a cataclysmic showdown between the forces of fire (Daenerys, her dragons, and the fiery blood of the Targaryens) and ice (those pesky White Walkers). Next, big flames engulf a lion statue, the sigil of House Lannister. "It's an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honors very much what [author George R.R. Martin] set out to do - which is flipping this kind of story on its head". If the result is dragonglass, it's worth noting that's one of the few ways White Walkers can be killed.

It's exciting to see HBO begin to tease Game of Thrones again as viewers have been waiting since August of 2017 for the hit show to return. There, they premiered a new attractive teaser for the final season.

Get your scheming shoes on, Game of Thrones fans.
