It’s of course no surprise that HBO continues to veil Game of Thrones in secrecy as the show prepares to end its epic eight-season run on the network. With just a few months left to go before the premiere date, only a few tiny glimpses of the upcoming season have been offered up. As for the actual storyline for season 8, almost nothing is known
HBO is not quite yet ready to end the suspense and tell fans exactly when those final six epic episodes will begin airing, but they have revealed when they will actually drop that information. On Twitter, HBO let it be known that the premiere date for season 8 will finally be unveiled on Sunday, Jan. 13 ahead of the premiere of True Detective season 3. They did not reveal if any new footage from season 8 will be aired as well, but that’s something fans will no doubt want to tune in and find out for themselves
