  • Game of Thrones releases new season 8 teaser, official premiere date

Despite having fewer installments, those episodes are reported to all be longer than an hour, with some possibly at "feature" length. We do know the final installment will consist of six episodes that are basically like movies, HBO boss Richard Plepler said. And needless to say, we'll all be glued to our screens when it does.

Sansa passes her mother Catelyn Stark's statue, who is heard saying: "All this horror that has come to my family.it's all because I couldn't love a motherless child".

In the tease, which was directed by David Nutter (a "Game of Thrones" veteran director, who did the fifth season finale), Jon meets up with Arya and Sansa in the Winterfell crypts. If you haven't yet, it's a must-see. It seems they are trying to find their way through it which leads them to their own statues. This had made us real anxious as to what will become of House Stark. One, it means we're likely going to get a real trailer for the final season soon, which means we'll finally get the first substantial new footage in over a year!

Pompeo 'optimistic' Syria Kurds, Turkey can be protected
An estimated 2,000 civilians remain trapped in the area around the town of Hajin, the United Nations said. Senior US officials were shocked too, among them Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who quit in protest.

He also mentions to Ned that every night he dreams of killing Rhaegar and despite Mr Stark saying all the Targaryen's were gone, the King of the Seven Kingdoms says: "Not all of them". Should we be more anxious about Bran or the fate of seven kingdoms?

The feather that Robert Baratheon put in Lyanna's statue in Season 1 and Sansa in Season 5, noticeably fell when Jon walked by. Jon pulled out his sword to confront something, as frost begins to take over. Can she please kill Cersei Lannister or something already?

The teaser-trailer doesn't offer much in terms of spoilers for the season but it certainly gave us chills.
