Wait, you still want a “Game of Thrones” Season 8 trailer? That teaser that aired right before the “True Detective” premiere Sunday — which had new footage but not from the new season — wasn’t enough to get you through till April 14? (Though it was kind enough to inform you that was the day when your long wait for the eighth and final season will end).

Well, you’re in luck, because “Game of Thrones” creators/showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss promise fans will get the trailer they have been clamoring for for months, even if they’d rather you go into the HBO fantasy epic’s final six episodes totally blind.

“[David Lynch] was saying he wished there were no trailers,” Benioff told Entertainment Weekly in an interview published Tuesday. “And it’s true, you could just go into a movie and see something completely fresh.”

“I wish there were no trailers,” Weiss said. “I just want somebody to say, ‘Trust me, go see this.'”

A couple glimpses of the final six episodes have been doled out in teeny, tiny chunks over the last few months in HBO “sneak peek” promos, compilations previewing multiple new and returning series.

The first came in August and showed a single quick shot of Sansa and Jon embracing, and the second aired during the Golden Globes earlier this month. That latter tease showed what fans assumed is more from the previous scene, with Sansa handing Winterfell over to Daenerys in their very first meeting — and not looking too happy about it.

Then there was the premiere date teaser that dropped Sunday — but, again, not a trailer.

And though Weiss and Benioff could leave you hanging, they aren’t going to.

“We won’t though,” Weiss told EW, when it was suggested they could get away without giving fans a proper trailer. “Because then we went and saw ‘Ready Player One’ with our kids and they played the ‘Westworld’ trailer and it looked great. And we’re like, ‘Ah, we should do that.'”

“Game of Thrones” Season 8 will premiere Sunday, April 14 at 9/8c on HBO.
