Luckily, the wait is nearly over since we now know the premiere date of the eighth and final season!

Before the premiere of the new season of True Detective, HBO aired a brief video showing three of the four remaining Starks, which the series has followed, then revealing the April 14 premiere date for Season 8.

In the teaser, Jon, Arya and Sansa Stark finally come together as a trio at Winterfell in a sequence that appears to predict their own deaths.

Along with the premiere date, HBO also released an nearly 2-minute long teaser, "The Crypts of Winterfell".

The announcement of Thrones' premiere date comes just one week after fans were gifted with the first footage of season eight. The crypt teaser begins with heavy overtures of Jon's true Targaryen parentage as he walks past Lyanna Stark's crypt. That represented a surge of more than 35% compared to the corresponding episode the previous season.

Seven hells, it's been a long hiatus for Game of Thrones fans! This is a direct callback to the first-ever "Game of Thrones" episode, on which Ned Stark welcomed King Robert Baratheon to the castle and told him Winterfell was his.

Although the new season will only run six episodes, each one is reportedly 90 minutes long, effectively making them six television movies. In the meantime, you can read INSIDER's key predictions for the final season here.
