Tonight, prior to the premiere of True Detective Season 3 starring Mahershala Ali, a fiery (yet icy) preview unveiled the exact date of when the first episode will debut.

HBO series Game of Thrones is finally making a return to the small screen this April.

The eighth season of the show will feature six lengthy episodes, promising never-before-seen grandeur and gore. Jon Snow actor Kit Harington previously revealed to GQ that the final season was "designed to break" the cast.

There's also a new teaser, set within the tombs at Winterfell.

Although 2019 would spell the end for Game of Thrones, multiple prequel and spin-off projects were in development. Is Jon a Stark at heart, despite his alternative lineage? This line is from the season 6 finale, when Lyanna made her brother Ned vow to take care of her and Rhaegar Targaryen's son - Jon.

Fans will no doubt be looking forward to the reunion of Arya Stark and Jon Snow, who haven't seen each other since the first season.

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss - as well as David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik - will direct episodes, and Benioff, Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill will write the scripts.

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

The fantasy series based on the George R.R. Martin novels has been one of HBO's most successful shows. Get pumped, people - Game of Mother Effing Thrones is nearly back, and I can't wait to see how showrunners David Benioff and D.B.
