Winter has arrived in Westeros but unfortunately, we still have ways to go until Game of Thrones makes its highly anticipated return to our screens. Thankfully though, HBO has given a small glimpse into what lies ahead for season 8.
On Sunday, the network released a trailer of sorts for all of its upcoming new programming which included a very small sneak peek at the new season.
In the teaser, our hearts were full of love though as Jon and Sansa did have a reunion as the two siblings (or cousins, as it turns out) shared a warm hug, calling back to their previous reunion, which also included a hug. You can see the hug right at the 1:10 of the sizzle reel.
The reel also included some past scenes from the hit series and also included footage from some of HBO’s other offerings. The reel gives us a first look at Meryl Streep in Big Little Lies season 2 along with Mahershala Ali in True Detective season. The network did also release a full trailer for True Detective, which you can see here.
Check out the reel below!
Game of Thrones still doesn’t have a premiere date at this time, although it was originally rumoured to be returning in April 2019. That being said, if the show continues to experience delays in returning, its shot for Emmys for 2019 will be gone as it won’t be considered to be eligible for nominations.
Here’s hoping that we get a premiere date soon as a lot went down last season, and we have a lot of questions that need answering before the show ends for good.
