Watch the first 'Game of Thrones' season 8 teaser

Game of Thrones final season

Game of Thrones final season

It's here, what we've all been waiting for - a Game of Thrones season eight trailer has finally dropped and we couldn't be more excited.

The fire and ice of the trailer are a nod to the George RR Martin book series the show is based on, A Song Of Fire And Ice.

As soon as there is some actual information about season 8 of Game of Thrones we will let you know. Cersei Lannister, however, was still safe in the south of Westeros with Jaime deserting her and riding up north.

The hit HBO series debuted the teaser during the 2018 Comic Con Experience in Brazil on Thursday (December 6).

The short teaser ends with fire and ice meeting at the table's center to forge a wall in the middle.

On the one hand, there is dramatic visualization of the fact that fire - presumably Daenerys' dragon fire - must fight the icy forces of the White Walkers. Next, big flames engulf a lion statue, the sigil of House Lannister.

As pointed out by our own Kim Renfro, "GoT" composer Djawadi Ramin's "Winter is Here", from the season seven finale, can be heard in the teaser.

Another fun factoid: The scripts also reveal at one point there was a plan for the White Walkers to communicate in a special language.

"Game of Thrones" returns to HBO in April.

Our resident "Game of Thrones" expert, Kim Renfro, will be back next year to cover the final season of "Game of Thrones".
