Eastern on HBO, Collider reports.

After fans of the epic HBO drama Game of Thrones have waited almost two years to watch the final season of the series, the network has finally announced its premiere date.

Although the new season will only run six episodes, each one is reportedly 90 minutes long, effectively making them six television movies.

In the previously released look of the show, we had seen Sansa Stark interact with Daenerys Targaryen as a befuddled Jon Snow looked on.

The final season of Game of Thrones will premier on April 14.

The premiere date for the hit HBO show was revealed in a new teaser titled Crypts of Winterfell, which premiered before the premiere of True Detective moments ago.

That was the big news on Sunday night along with a new teaser trailer for the final six episodes of the sprawling epic that will come to a close this year on HBO.

They are greeted by Sansa Stark, who told Dany, "Winterfell is yours, Your Grace".

It was a faux conversation between the social media manager of the Game of Thrones Twitter account and their boss. Despite having fewer installments, those episodes are reported to all be longer than an hour, with some possibly at "feature" length. The clip also announced the premiere date for Season 8, which is set to return on 14 April. Most heartening is the final shot, as a hard frost creeps towards the Stark trio - and they draw swords together to fight the encroaching winter.
