This final season of the long-running series will be six episodes long, as opposed to its previous standard 10 episode seasons.

Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen on "Game of Thrones".

The wintry wait for "Game of Thrones" isn't over, but fans at least officially know when the suspense will end.

For anyone who doesn't know, the third season of True Detective has been called a return to form for the hit HBO series.

The past speaks to the future of Winterfell in the first full teaser for the final season of HBO's "Game of Thrones", finally premiering Sunday, April 14. At a point, Jon Snow passes Lyanna Stark's statue (his birth mother) and hears the voices of their dead family members.

A lot of the excitement from the teaser trailer comes at the moment when ice begins to spread its way through the crypt as Jon, Arya and Sansa gaze upon statues of their own faces.

Fans have eagerly awaited the six-episode finale of the show since Season 7 of the popular HBO show ended in August 2017. Bringing the feather to her statue was his way of showing he remembered what she cared about, remembered the connection they had, and still cared.

So when the crypt fills with icy mist in the teaser, and Jon and Arya both draw their swords?

Game of Thrones would go on to a much longer run than Camelot, which was cancelled after just one season.

Also, we couldn't help but notice that Jon's statue showed him as an aged man, as compared to his sisters' younger-looking statues.

They are greeted by Sansa Stark, who told Dany, "Winterfell is yours, Your Grace". "The reaction I had while watching them was, "I'm watching a movie, '" Plepler remarked".
