It's been more than a year since a new episode of Game of Thrones has aired, and fans are getting understandably impatient. HBO announced a few months back that the epic series would return for its final season in April, and now we've finally gotten an exact premiere date.

Just ahead of the premiere of True Detective season 3, HBO confirmed that Game of Thrones's final season will debut on April 14, 2019, and shared a new teaser.

Although we're excited for the return of Game of Thrones, we also have to prepare for the heartbreak that we've already been warned about. According to Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth, fans are going to need therapy when it's all over. At least we have a few months to prepare.
