Thank the Lord of Light!
The very first footage from “Game of Thrones” final season was released Sunday night, as part of a video full of teases for upcoming installments of “True Detective,” “Big Little Lies,” and more HBO programs.
While the trailer included footage from previous episodes of “GoT,” one shot was brand new and showed Jon Snow (Kit Harington) hugging his little sister Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) at Winterfell. You can see the moment at the 1:10 mark in the video above when “final season” very appropriately flashes across the screen.
Some fans took this image as an old one, the siblings’ reunion at Castle Black many moons ago, but it is a new scene (TheWrap confirmed the footage was fresh with HBO).
But hold your dragons, “GoT” fans, because while this footage was ready to go Sunday, the final batch of episodes aren’t coming until the first half of 2019. Though it is going to be worth the wait, as star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau recently told TheWrap “all the pieces fit” in the end.
Watch the teaser footage above.
“Game of Thrones” eighth and final season will air in the first half of 2019 on HBO.

Review the baddies who went down in flames and the heroes who died epically this year
Television characters are a dime a dozen, but sometimes when we lose one it can pack a pretty hefty punch. Especially if they go out in a totally epic way. In 2017, we watched more than a few good men and women kick the bucket on TV (though a couple we were honestly glad to be rid of). Here are the ones who went out as total badasses — or maybe were killed by a total badass. Beware of spoilers!
