Game of Thrones final season teaser trailer released

Game of Thrones Season 8 Teaser Has a Battle of Ice and Fire

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.

A teaser trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones has been released.

This is poetic, harking back to the title of the novel series the show is based on, A Song of Ice and Fire. The clash and union of the two elements is a major plot point in the series.

Season eight's teaser trailer was released late yesterday, and at the time of writing, had already amassed more than 2,5 million views on YouTube.

It sees frost descending over a map of Westeros including a wolf and dragon map marker, while fire creeps across too, over a lion marker, before they meet in the middle.

"Game of Thrones" returns to HBO in April.

And if you really have to spout your theories about what you think will happen then tweet us here or leave a comment on Facebook.

It's been quite a ride through Westeros over the past seven seasons, but next year will mark the final season of Game of Thrones. In four months, the final season of the hit HBO fantasy epic will be upon us and the theories and predictions will either come true or fall by the wayside.

Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) persuaded Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) of the threat, and she finally took notice.
