Share

HBO's blockbuster fantasy series Game of Thrones will have its highly-anticipated eighth and final season premiere in 2019, but along with the arrival of a new season, fans will have the opportunity to cop some sneakers in a new collaboration between the series and the apparel giant Adidas.

HBO made the announcement ahead of True Detective season three's premiere, along with a new and chilling Stark-centric teaser, which you can find below.

In the tease, which was directed by David Nutter (a "Game of Thrones" veteran director, who did the fifth season finale), Jon meets up with Arya and Sansa in the Winterfell crypts.

Season eight will premiere at 1pm, April 15, Sky said. Finally, the Stark siblings will know that Jon is not Ned Stark's illegitimate son but his nephew and a Targaryen.

The official premiere date is Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m.

Jon and Arya haven't seen each other since series 1, when they had quite a strong brother-sister relationship, so the reunion will no doubt delight fans no end. They then come upon memorial statues of themselves as the crypt begins to turn icy cold, presumably as the Night King nears. One, it means we're likely going to get a real trailer for the final season soon, which means we'll finally get the first substantial new footage in over a year!

Game of Thrones returns on April 14. In the meantime, you can read INSIDER's key predictions for the final season here.
