The first Game of Thrones trailer does not include any actual footage, however it does feature all of your favorite Starks (sorry, Bran) reminiscing about what they’ve lost as the True Enemy of the North arrives. Winter, and the death that comes with it. Also, you might be able to just eye that April 14 release date!

The final season of Game of Thrones will run only six episodes, the briefest Thrones season to date. Three episodes are directed by David Nutter, two are by Miguel Sapochnik. The series finale (the 73rd overall — are there really only 73 episodes?!? It feels like there are so many more) will be directed by Thrones TV creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. The returning cast includes Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Liam Cunningham, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and, of course, Kit Harington.
Game of Thrones Season 8 begins its final movement on April 14. Brace thyself.
