Winter is coming and it is set to stay until April 2019 and beyond. 

HBO have confirmed the month that the final season of Game of Thrones will begin airing. 

Season 7 of GOT finished in 2017 and the show skipped airing new episodes in 2018, but will be back on our screen in less than six months. 

The final season will begin airing in April 2019 – although an exact date has not been confirmed – and each episode is rumoured to be feature lenght. 

The hit adaptation of the novels of George R.R. Martin will air in the UK on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV when the series returns for the final instalment of what will be an eight-year run.

Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage will reprise their popular roles as Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister. Lena Headey will face them as the key antagonist, Cersei Lannister.

Sky Atlantic has tweeted about the return of the violent tale of dynastic wars and mythical conflicts, with a video of key moments from the show.

A short trailer shows the main players in the struggle alongside the tagline #ForTheThrone. The tweet reads: "Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death."

Sky Atlantic has also continually tweeted a stream of images from turning points in the show, including photos of Ned Stark and Joffrey Baratheon from earlier series.
