'Game of Thrones' Final Season Premiere Date Revealed

HBO has revealed that the highly anticipated final season of Game of Thrones will premiere on Sunday, April 14, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The announcement, which came at the end of a teaser called "Crypts of Winterfell," was made Sunday ahead of the third season premiere of HBO's True Detective.

The final season will feature a lean directing team of veteran Thrones helmers David Nutter (the Red Wedding episode "Rains of Castamere") and Miguel Sapochnik (the hard-hitting "Hardhome"), as well as creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who are helming the finale.

Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and other legendary figures within the Thrones canon were able to cast aside their differences and work together toward fighting a common enemy: the Army of the Dead, led by the vicious Night King.

Toward the end of season seven, Cersei announced her intentions to hire a mercenary company to destroy the combined Stark and Targaryen forces.

While the Night King poses the greatest threat at the moment, it would be a grave mistake to discount Cersei's deadly pettiness.
