While nearly 30 million people were busy watching some sure-to-be-winners get bested during last night's 91st annual Academy Awards, HBO was offering up some surprises of its own when—just ahead of True Detective's season 3 finale—the network dropped a two-minute preview of what's to come in 2019.
In addition to featuring sneak peeks at some of HBO's most anticipated new series, movies, and specials—including Catherine the Great, His Dark Materials, Chernobyl, Watchmen, Euphoria, Mrs. Fletcher, and the Deadwood movie—the promo featured footage from some returning favorites, including Veep, Barry, Silicon Valley, Big Little Lies, and Succession. But the most exciting moment of all might have been the tiny preview of brand-new footage from Game of Thrones season 8.
The brief scene shows the Unsullied arriving at Winterfell, with Drogon flying above them. While onlookers huddle together, seemingly terrified at what they see, Arya Stark looks more fascinated than frightened.
It may not reveal a lot, but fans of the epic series will take anything they can get at this point. Let the fan theories fly!
Game of Thrones will return for its final season on April 14, 2019.
