Game of Thrones footage teases icy meeting between Daenerys and Sansa

The old gods and the new bless us with the tiniest glimpse of season eight footage.

Jackson Ryan Former Science Editor
Jackson Ryan was CNET's science editor, and a multiple award-winning one at that. Earlier, he'd been a scientist, but he realized he wasn't very happy sitting at a lab bench all day. Science writing, he realized, was the best job in the world -- it let him tell stories about space, the planet, climate change and the people working at the frontiers of human knowledge. He also owns a lot of ugly Christmas sweaters.

Winter is so close and we don't quite have a trailer for Game of Thrones' final season yet, so this new footage will have to do.

HBO wants you to get hyped for 2019, and the Game of Thrones Twitter account does too. New footage, tweeted on Sunday evening, gives us a very brief glimpse of one Sansa Stark, one Jon Snow and a certain Mother of Dragons, plus a few other characters we've grown to love.

"Winterfell is yours, your grace" should set off wild speculation and excitement across the internet. I, for one, welcome our new dragon queen overlords. I also welcome a new trailer, so get on that, HBO. 

The one-minute teaser also features a look at HBO's upcoming series such as the third season of True Detective, set to drop next week, a quick peek at Watchmen, Euphoria and the next season of Big Little Lies

Winter is now so close that I have worn out my collection of ugly Christmas sweaters waiting for it to get here. Game of Thrones returns to HBO in April 2019.
