Game of Thrones season 8 is about to land and we can barely contain our excitement - even less so now the new trailer has dropped!

What do we know about season 8?
As the TV show has now overtaken the book series by writer George RR Martin, it's impossible to say what's going to happen in the last ever series of the show.
Having said that, if season 7 is anything to go by, we can predict that show makers David Benioff and D B Weiss will pack in as much action as possible.
In the last season, we saw the Mother of Dragons get it on with her nephew, Jon Snow (unbeknown by them); we saw Arya Stark bake a human pie before reuniting with her sister Sansa and brother Bran; and the Lannisters' masterminding was taken to a whole new level - so we expect that these story lines to be rounded off in season 8.
Some of the biggest questions and cliff hangers of the previous season were centred around the role of the White Walkers and the creation of a White Walker dragon (where did they get those chains, tho??)
We're also hoping that wee Bran has a bigger part to play in it all, and the hours we've spent watching him travel in the snow weren't for nothing.
Then, of course, is the game of thrones itself. We're desperate to find out who takes the Iron Throne after eight long years.
When is Game of Thrones season 8 released?
You can catch the new episodes of Game of Thrones from Sunday 14 April, 2019.
Unlike previous seasons, the eighth only contains 6 episodes.
It has been reported that the episodes will be longer than usual, in order to do the series justice and give us the answers we need.
