‘Game of Thrones’ will return for final season in April, HBO reveals

It’s mid-January and much of the country is snowed in, but millions of people were thrilled Sunday night to hear that winter is coming in another 90 days.

Of course, that particular winter — which includes frozen zombies and an ice dragon — refers to the return of HBO’s smash hit “Game of Thrones.” The AT&T Inc. T, +1.55%  -owned premium cable network announced Sunday night that the fantasy series would return for its final season April 14, and showed the most revealing trailer yet:

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the eighth and final season since Season 7 ended in August 2017. While it will only consist of six episodes, they are reportedly extended to near movie-length.

But while ”Game of Thrones,” which is based upon George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” book series, is wrapping up, HBO is investing in its extended universe. A yet-to-be-named new series, set in Westeros thousands of years before “Game of Thrones,” is currently under development by HBO.
