As many of us know, the beloved series “Game of Thrones” is coming to an end. After plenty of hype surrounding the final season premiere date, it has been revealed. Last night, before the season premiere of “True Detective,” HBO aired a teaser with the date. As it turns out, the trailer called “Crypts of Winterfell,” announced the final season will begin Sunday, April 14th.
Three months from now, fans will get excited about the start of the final season. However, because the series has become such a phenomenon, it’ll feel like the end of an era. But because the final season will have six episodes, the sadness fans may feel won’t be prolonged.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, each episode could run as long as 90 minutes, each will feel like an event. Also, veteran directors return to the helm. David Nutter (“Rains Of Castamere”) and Miguel Sapochnik (“Hardhome”) are just a few back in the director’s chair. Plus, creators and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss will helm the series finale.
Since the season premieres in April, that means it will be eligible for this year’s Emmys. Normally, one shouldn’t count their chickens before they hatch. However, a case could already be made for this season dominating the awards. Last year, “Game of Thrones” won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series and they love repeat winners. So, it’s plausible they could take advantage of the opportunity to repeat. But again, it’s best to wait until the season makes its official premiere.
The official teaser can be seen below.
