WATCH: ‘Game of Thrones’ Releases Recap Teaser, Premiere Date for New Season


The largest show ever constructed, both in manpower and in budget, “Game of Thrones” is shaping up to be one of the stories of the Summer. With the final season just around the corner, the behemoth of a series is set to take its victory lap. If you want to begin your binge of the series before it’s finale, there is a lot to get through. Today, a new teaser from HBO reminds the audience of the pain and suffering that led to this season. Each moment mattered through the show, and the 30-second spot should help get audiences excited once more.

The final season of HBO’s famed series is just around the corner. We got the official release month, which is more information than we had before. The season will begin in April 2019, just in time for Emmy consideration. The final season is said to be a condensed from a ten episode order, and instead will fall closer to six episodes. However, the run times for these episodes has been estimated to be closer to feature films. With the potential for two-hour episodes of “Thrones,” each episode may take on event status.

“Game of Thrones” will seek to complete its Emmy dominance. Last year, it took home several big prizes, including Outstanding Drama Series and Supporting Actor wins. The next Emmys will be the show’s last, and it has a chance to tie the record for the most Drama Series wins in the process. If HBO intends to bring the show to a strong conclusion at the Emmys, they’re doing a good job keeping the series in everyone’s minds.

“Game of Thrones” will air on Sundays on HBO in April 2019.
