Sneak peek pics from Game of Thrones
WITH just weeks to go until the long-awaited premiere, HBO has released the first photos from the final season of Game of Thrones.
The collection of 14 images feature close-ups of Daenarys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister, Sansa Stark, along with all the other major players.
Curiously, the only two characters to appear in a shot together are Jon Snow and Daenarys Targaryen, serving as a hint at what's to come. In one of their two shared pictures, they're seen staring into each other's eyes.
The final chapter of the multi-award winning fantasy series will stream in Australia express from the US on Monday, April 15 at 11am AEDT on Foxtel.
Season 8 will comprise of six episodes, which is down from seven in the previous season and the usual 10 in prior seasons.
Each episode will be the length of an entire feature film with some of the biggest battle sequences in the show's history.
After months with no new information about the final series, HBO released the first major teaser last month which showed Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) declaring Winterfell's allegiance to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) - a historic moment in the series.
"Winterfell is yours, your grace," Sansa says to the Mother of Dragons in the short clip.
Jon Snow, portrayed by Kit Harington, is also in the scene standing next to Dany.
The three power players are in Winterfell, where characters are gathering to fight the Army of the Dead as we countdown to the show's conclusion.
The first seven seasons are available to view on demand on Foxtel Now.
