The seventh-season finale set a ratings record in 2017, attracting 16.5 million viewers on HBO and via same-day streaming, according to Nielsen data.

We now know that the eighth and final season of the fantasy epic will start rolling from 14 April, 2019. The crypts of Winterfell hold the dark and ancient past of the House Stark, which might finally be revealed to the three.

But that was a magazine spread and this is an official promo for the final season of the show.

Fans couldn't contain their emotions as they see Jon, Sansa, and Arya reunited after all these years.

'Seriously, does this mean Sansa and Arya are gonna die young and Jon won't?

When the troika reaches the crypt's end, they come face-to-face with their own statues. The only thing in the army's way was The Wall, which the reanimated dragon burned down, giving the White Walkers an opening to invade. The same feather was picked up by Sansa in the fifth season, when she visits her aunt's statue.

And finally there are the words from Ned himself as he reminds Jon that Stark blood runs through his veins even if he doesn't carry the family name.

Game of Thrones season eight would last for six episodes, makers HBO said.

There was one small Easter Egg in the minute-and-a-half long video and it was hinting very heavily at Jon Snow's (Kit Harington) parents. Meanwhile, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Jon were busy having incestuous sexy times on their journey back to Winterfell after securing a fake truce from Cersei (Lena Headey).
