House Stark has reassembled for the first time since 2011's first season of Game of Thrones in this new teaser for the eighth and final season of the epic fantasy series. The three surviving members of the Stark family—Sophie Turner's Sansa, Maisie Williams' Arya, and Kit Harington's Jon Snow—are preparing for battle in a set-up that's more than a little bit like Aragon's quest to recruit the dead in Return of the King.
But I digress, the big news out of this teaser isn't the reunited Stark siblings, but rather the announcement of the premiere for the first of six final episodes. It's exactly three months from today, on April 14 at 9pm EST, that the show will return to the air. While there are only six adventures to go before it all comes to an end, word on the street is that they'll be supersized 90-minute episodes, with the grand finale clocking in close to the two hour mark.
Hopefully the fact that winter is now here will put an end to the "winter is coming" memes, although something tells me those will live on long past the show's relevancy. We hate to see Game of Thrones go, but we'll love watching it leave beginning April 14.
