'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Premiere: Official Release Date Confirmed

'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 Premiere: Official Release Date Confirmed

After nearly two years of waiting, Game Of Thrones fans finally know when the eighth and final season of HBO's epic fantasy drama will premiere, as Home Box Office finally dropped the official release date in unison with the season three premiere of True Detective.

HBO posted a screenshot of a bot reply on Twitter to a question about when Game of Thrones Season 8 will premiere.

When the final season, Season 8, premieres, the show will have been on an off-air hiatus for over a year and a half.

Earlier, the makers released a teaser of the final season just giving an insight of what's coming up.

True Detective Season 3 will air on Sunday, January 13.

Anything that has anything to do with Game of Thrones garners a ton of attention, especially since fans are foaming at the mouth for any news on the show.

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

So, it seems as though it was a smart move linking Game of Thrones up with True Detective. HBO CEO Richard Phepler says, "It's a spectacle". They've exceeded the bar.

They also took the conversation between Joffrey Baratheon and Tywin Lannister into consideration as it was pretty important because, in the conversation, Tywin Lannister said, "Any man who must say 'I am the king" is no true king, ' but Daenerys already contradicted by declaring herself as Queen, so it could have foreshadowed that someone else will take the control eventually.

And if fans still dread the ending of this monumental series, there are still prequel spinoffs to come.

Based on George RR Martin's novels, Game of Thrones is about the thrilling quest to claim the Iron Throne.

The Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere date is officially April 14, 2019.
