Game of Thrones season eight officially has a premiere date, promising that winter is coming in spring 2019.

HBO, in a Tuesday morning tweet, announced that Game of Thrones will begin its final season in April 2019, teasing fans with a 30-second compilation of clips from previous seasons. Now in a new teaser for the series finale, it's confirmed the end will begin in April 2019, which sounds like the ideal time of year for a winter apocalypse.

To promote the final episodes, HBO will launch #FortheThrone, "a multi-phased, global marketing campaign that will unfold over the months leading into the final season".

By the time the season airs it will be nearly two years since the seventh series of the show, based on George RR Martin's book series A Song of Ice and Fire, was broadcast in summer 2017.
