Cersei Lannister, however, was still safe in the south of Westeros with Jaime deserting her and riding up north. We're a few months away from the final season of Game of Thrones, where good will take its last stand against the forces of the undead, and we've gotten a gorgeously symbolic teaser for the final battle to come.

HBO dropped a new promo for the show's upcoming eighth and final season on Thursday, revealing that while we've known winter is coming for a while, fire's here as well.

Again, per VF: "In the show's pilot episode, the White Walkers clearly communicate in "inhuman shrieks" and 'a chilling sound like crackling ice, ' which echoes George R.R. Martin's description of their language in his books".

Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere sometime in April 2019.

Then a statue of a lion is also engulfed in flames before the ice and fire meet in the middle.

Game of Thrones season 7 ended with the Night King breaking down The Wall by melting it with the dragon's fire.

Renfro wonders if the two converging is representative of what happens when a wight-dragon fights a regular dragon.

It's exciting to see HBO begin to tease Game of Thrones again as viewers have been waiting since August of 2017 for the hit show to return.

Is it getting chilly in here, or is it just Game of Thrones' latest teaser trailer?
