“When you play the game of thrones, you win, or you die.”

Nobody knows that better than Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) in HBO’s Game of Thrones teaser announcing the return of the eighth and final season in April.

While the promo doesn’t offer any new footage, it weaves together many of the events and conflicts that have led up to this point. As the trailer puts it: “Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death.”

There’s only one war that matters,” says Jon Snow (Kit Harington). “And it is here.”

HBO debuted the teaser around the hashtag #ForTheThrone, which ties into larger marketing plan that includes posters highlighting characters’ pasts, as well as a takeover of Grand Central Station.

While the series is coming to an end, HBO is developing other Game of Thrones related projects, including one from Jane Goldman that takes place thousands of years before the events in the series.
