The trailer finds Jon, Sansa and Arya stalking through their family home's underground passages, walking past statues of Ned and Catelyn Stark as prophetic lines of dialogue from past seasons echo. One assumes Bran is not included in this teaser due to him assuring us he is no longer Bran Stark and is now the Three Eyed Raven.

Actor Kit Harrington arrives for the world premiere of the television fantasy drama "Game of Thrones" series 5, at The Tower of London, March 18, 2015.

The final season of HBO's beloved fantasy drama Game of Thrones is all set to return this April, after a hiatus of nearly two whole years.

The promo shows the three Starks in the Crypts of Winterfell, where they pass the tombs of their dead relatives.

The network held true to its promise and delivered on a proper look at what fans can look forward to in the season when it premieres on April 14th. Luckily, the wait is nearly over since we now know the premiere date of the eighth and final season!

This eighth season is only six episodes long, which means the finale should be on May 19 if HBO doesn't skip any Sundays. This was placed there by King Robert Baratheon on the very first episode of the series.

HBO isn't getting out of the "Game of Thrones" business. Is the entire Stark line, including Jon - whom Lyanna cared for even more than the exotic birds - coming to an end?

The Stark children come together in the crypts beneath Winterfell in the new "Game of Thrones" final season teaser with the debut date finally being revealed...
