Winter is coming — just not ’til spring.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO on Sunday, April 14 at 9/8c.

Season 8 will consist of six movie-length episodes and pick up where the last season left off. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) bent the knee — and, um, other body parts — to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) just as his brother warged around through time enough to confirm Jon’s true identity as her nephew. Last we saw, Cersei (Lena Headey) is still as sabotage-happy as ever, but this time, she doesn’t have Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in her corner. Oh, and the Night King’s army has breached the Wall at East Watch and now has a zombie ice dragon on-hand.

There are a lot of theories and rumors floating around about what will happen to our heroes, frenemies and foes, but, to borrow a phrase from the late great Ygritte, we really know nothing.

HBO announced the premiere date for Game of Thrones Season 8 ahead of Sunday’s premiere of True Detective Season 3, after teasing fans on social media that the news would arrive with the crime-drama’s return to form. The short preview featured Jon alongside Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Arya (Maisie Williams) in the Stark family crypt as they encountered creepy statues of themselves and braced for the arrival of the freeze — and it may or may not have been a wink to that fan theory about Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) becoming the Night King.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 14 at 9/8c. Prepare accordingly for lots of ice and fire and epic surprises.
