HBO has officially announced the release date of Game of Thrones as well as a teaser video online.

The eighth and final season will be coming to HBO Apr. 14.

The teaser showed Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and his cousins - Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) walking through a tunnel decorated with family statues. Towards the end, a feather drops to the floor and turns to ice and the tunnel they draw their swords prepared to battle the White Walkers.

During the last season, Jon, (who grew up as Ned Stark’s bastard son) is revealed to be the legitimate son of Ned’s sister Lyanna and Rhaegar Targaryen. The new was revealed after he had already bedded his Daenerys, his aunt.

In the first season, he was mocked by his brothers for being the "runt of the litter," but it appears that he now holds a legitimate claim to the throne.
