GAME of Thrones fans, this is it – the countdown to the beginning of the end.

HBO has announced the date for the premiere of the first episode of the last ever series, after months of teasing what is to come. In a new trailer, the network confirmed the long-awaited eighth and final series will air on 15 April at 3am and 10pm CET. The hit adaptation of the fantasy novels of George RR Martin returns to screens after a near two-year wait, bringing the story to an end after having fans glued since its start in 2011. Game of Thrones has made stars of many of its cast members, including Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Lena Headey, who will all reprise their roles for the last outing. But while this may be the final showdown for the main players, fans can look forward to a prequel, with details revealed last week. The as yet unnamed series takes place thousands of years before the events in Game of Thrones, with HBO saying it “chronicles the world’s descent from the Age Of Heroes into its darkest hour”. So how will it all end? Who will survive?
