The trailer for HBO drama fantasy Game of Thrones’ eighth season has been released and hints at a final battle between the living and the dead.
Based on the series of novels by George R.R. Martin, A Song of Ice and Fire, the show’s previous series saw Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) seek an alliance with Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) to prepare for the arrival of the Night King.
The new trailer sees a line of characters, including Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) preparing for war in Winterfell, as a smug Cersei remains safe in the Red Keep.
It also anticipates the arrival of the long-awaited legendary mercenary troop The Golden Company, an army mentioned several times in the seventh series.
Despite being the final season of Game of Thrones, fans can look forward to four new spin off shows of the epic fantasy series that will explore other kingdoms and smaller characters.
The eighth series premieres on April 15th on Sky Atlantic and Now TV.
