However, there are rumours that each episode will be an hour and a half long.

The seventh-season finale set a ratings record in 2017, attracting 16.5 million viewers on HBO and via same-day streaming, according to Nielsen data.

HBO made the announcement ahead of True Detective season three's premiere, along with a new and chilling Stark-centric teaser, which you can find below.

The Game of Thrones teaser released by HBO shows the Stark children returning home to reunite in the family's crypt at Winterfell. It was shot specifically to hint to fans what the final season might hold.

Game of Thrones Final Season Premiere Date Revealed
This final season of the long-running series will be six episodes long, as opposed to its previous standard 10 episode seasons. They then come upon memorial statues of themselves as the crypt begins to turn icy cold, presumably as the Night King nears.

The viewer hears messages their from dead family members Ned and Catelyn Stark as well as Lyanna Stark, Ned's sister and the mother Jon never knew.

As for Lyanna's words, those were to her brother Ned when she revealed that Jon was her son by Rhaegar Targaryen, which means he's the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

"Game of Thrones" dropped an ominous trailer for the upcoming season Sunday, although it doesn't show much footage or plot details about the new season. Meanwhile, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Jon were busy having incestuous sexy times on their journey back to Winterfell after securing a fake truce from Cersei (Lena Headey). In particular, these new Game of Thrones sneakers will be within the silhouette of one of Adidas' most popular models: the Ultra Boost.

The 1 minute 28 second clip trails the fantasy epic's eighth and last series, which hits screens on April 14. Most heartening is the final shot, as a hard frost creeps towards the Stark trio - and they draw swords together to fight the encroaching winter.
