When is the Game of Thrones season 8 trailer released?
Game of Thrones released its first teaser trailer, entitled Dragonstone, on December 6, 2018.
HBO then waited a month before dropping the second Game of Thrones teaser promo, entitled Crypts of Winterfell.
Crypts of Winterfell provided the first glimpse at the surviving members of the Stark family – Jon Snow, Arya Stark, and Sansa Stark, although fans were quick to question why Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) wasn’t in the latest Game of Thrones promo.
Both Game of Thrones trailers so far, however, haven’t revealed any clips or spoilers from the upcoming season.
Game of Thrones’ fans wait for a glimpse at season eight episodes may be prolonged a while longer, as a release date for a third trailer hasn’t been shared by show bosses.
A trailer is on its way though, with show producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirming the news to Entertainment Weekly.
Benioff told EW: “[David Lynch] was saying he wished there were no trailers, and it’s true, you could just go into a movie and see something completely fresh.”
Weiss then added: “I wish there were no trailers, I just want somebody to say, ‘Trust me, go see this’ – We won’t though, we went and saw Ready Player One with our kids and they played the Westworld trailer and it looked great (so) we were like, ‘Ah, we should do that’.”
The only clip of action from Game of Thrones season eight so far came in a trailer released by HBO which teased all the upcoming drama on the US TV channel.
In the clip, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) arrives at Winterfell with Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen).
She is welcomed by Jon Snow, Sansa Stark, and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie).
As Daenerys approaches the trio, the camera switches to Sansa, who greet Daenerys with the statement: “Winterfell is yours, your grace”.
Who will star in Game of Thrones season 8?
Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Emilia Clarke, Iain Glen and Gwendoline Christie are all certainties to appear in season eight of Game of Thrones having featured in promo clips for the upcoming series.

Lena Headey (as Cersei Lannister) will continue to play the role of the murderous queen who currently sits on the Iron Throne – although Cersei has been tipped to die at some point in season eight.
Other actors to return will include Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (as Jaime Lannister), Nathalie Emmanuel (as Missandei), and Jacob Anderson (as Grey Worm).
