HBO may reveal the ‘Game of Thrones’ premiere date this weekend

Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones Season 8

In a new post on Twitter today, HBO confirmed that we will learn the official start date for the final batch of episodes this weekend - prior to the start of True Detective on sunday night.

After nearly two years of waiting, Game Of Thrones fans finally know when the eighth and final season of HBO's epic fantasy drama will premiere, as Home Box Office finally dropped the official release date in unison with the season three premiere of True Detective. Our feeling of course is the earlier, the better - but we also say this as someone who just wants to get the show as soon as humanly possible. It's a brilliant promotional play for the third season of that show, but beyond that it's an opportunity to make an event around the premiere date.

Tonight, prior to the premiere of True Detective Season 3 starring Mahershala Ali, a fiery (yet icy) preview on USA television unveiled the exact date of when the first episode will debut. We're also already on record here as speculating that April 28 is a good bet for when the show will return.

Without a grand prize to award, the brewery is donating $20,000 to the Lurie Children's Hospital, the charity chosen by Parkey. Goose Island officials invited "armchair kickers" who thought they could do better - to give it a shot.

Specifically, Alt Shift X is looking at the wonders of the world of Game of Thrones, those structures so impressive that no mere mortal can look upon them without jaws agape.

Just six episodes remain of the program, although many installments of the eighth and final season are expected to run longer than an hour, as the producers endeavor to bring the TV version of George R.R. Martin's epic fantasy tale to a satisfying close. HBO previously released a short teaser trailer for the season, which fans have been awaiting for two years.
