April is coming.

The eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" will premiere on Sunday, April 14, HBO announced Sunday.

The network also released a new teaser trailer for the season featuring Arya Stark, Sansa Stark and Jon Snow in the crypt of Winterfell, walking past the statues and tombs of previous Starks, then coming across their own statues (and presumably, their future tombs as well). Then their torches go out and a frost arrives, perhaps hinting at the oncoming battle the Starks may have to fight against the White Walkers.

However, the footage was reportedly only shot for the teaser trailer and doesn't include any actual footage from the upcoming season.

Season eight will only include six episodes, though an HBO executive said each episode is more like a movie, so hopefully fans won't be left wanting.
