HBO has released the final trailer from Season 8 of its Emmy-Award winning series Game Of Thrones, which will premiere on April 14, 2019, on HBO.
At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in Season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent.
The cast includes Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, Liam Cunningham as Davos Seaworth, Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy, Nathalie Emmanuel as Missandei, Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth,
John Bradley as Samwell Tarly, Isaac Hempstead Wright as Bran Stark, Rory McCann as Sandor “The Hound” Clegane, Conleth Hill as Varys, Carice van Houten as Melisandre, Kristofer Hivju as Tormund Giantsbane, Hannah Murray as Gilly, Jerome Flynn as Bronn, Joe Dempsie as Gendry, Iain Glen as Jorah Mormont, Jacob Anderson as Grey Worm, Pilou Asbaek as Euron Greyjoy, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson as Gregor Clegane
The executive producers of Game of Thrones Season 8 are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger, and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; and producers are Chris Newman, Greg Spence, and Lisa McAtackney.
The final season of Game of Thrones likely won’t be our last trip to Westeros, however, as HBO has greenlit a pilot set 1,000 years before the events of the wildly popular sword and sorcery epic. Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse have been cast in the prequel series. S.J. Clarkson (The Defenders, Jessica Jones) will direct the pilot.
Game of Thrones Season 8 will premiere on April 14, 2019, on HBO.
