HBO teases us with ‘Game of Thrones’ season 8 character images

As part of that publicity initiative, the network tweeted out 20 new character posters this morning, each of them "checking in" with all of the surviving principal characters.

Each character poster comes with a classically cryptic Thrones quote, detailing "who remains in the realm". The eighth and the final season premieres in April and the makers have been quite successful to not let anything leak out yet. A similar set up has been revealed in Toronto as well.

It's been one year, seven months and 18 days days since the last new episode of Game of Thrones aired in late August of 2017, but the wait is almost over. The plot details are being kept under wraps.

In a joint interview with Glamour magazine, Turner said: "People always think Maisie and I are a couple".

Flying from his native Santa Fe, NM, to Belfast in Northern Ireland for the location shoot would take too much time away from working on his penultimate novel, "The Winds of Winter", EW reports.

Plenty of other sharp-eyed fans noted that the image of Jon Snow in the just-released batch looks exactly like the one of his dearly departed father Ned from season one's promo material (hmm).

Martin had filmed a cameo in the pilot episode for Game of Thrones, as a guest at the wedding of the character Daenerys Targaryen. The final season finds her finally making strides to reclaim the throne for her family alongside Jon Snow, essayed by Kit Harington. "I'm such a goody two shoes. I tried to throw some things under the wig, throw them in my bag, nothing", she said. People were watching me.
