At the Golden Globes awards this year, HBO debuted the first footage from the final season of Game of Thrones, and other shows like Watchmen, True Detective and Veep. The promo video was later shared on the network's official Twitter handle.

The video shows Daenerys Targaryen walking towards Sansa Stark. Sansa tells her, coldly, "Winterfell is yours, Your Grace," as her step brother Jon Snow looks on.

It was previously reported that the final season will focus on Sansa's displeasure at Jon for kneeling before the foreign queen, Daenerys.  Furthermore, the final season will open in Winterfell, and it will echo a lot of the scenes of the pilot episode of the HBO fantasy show. However, instead of Robert Baratheon's procession entering Winterfell, Daenarys, with her army, will be approaching House of Stark's seat of power. The rest of the episode will be focused on the intermingling and introduction of the characters to one another, who will conjoin their efforts against the Army of the Dead.

Game of Thrones season 8 is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2019, but the exact date has not been disclosed by the network. George RR Martin, the author of the book series, had revealed that while the show will come to an end, there are five  prequels to the show, set in different time periods, in development.
