Yes, Game of Thrones will officially return for their final season on HBO in April 2019. 

HBO shared the news via social media, with the hashtag #FORTHETHRONE. 

Well, the seven seasons long, at times heartbreaking, and always intriguing, journey was for the coveted Iron Throne after all. 

Bring me his head #ForTheThrone.

Although an official teaser video has also been released, there is no footage of the new season in the video. Rather it is a culmination of scenes from all the last seasons -  arriving at a bloody end! 

Guess it is time to start watching the seasons again!
