There’s just two months left to wait for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. The Internet is full of wild speculation and crazy theories about what might happen but there’s currently very little in the way of official information.
HBO are understandably trying to keep a lid on anything at all that might spoil the season. Right now there’s almost no new footage available. In an effort to tease us some more, HBO have now released 14 first look photos that feature many of the main characters.
As you’ll see below, these photos have been carefully selected to not give anything away…or do they?
View the Game of Thrones season 8 first look photos in our gallery:
There are photos of Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) sat on the Iron Throne and standing in the Red Keep as well as one of her brother Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).
The rest of the images appear to be taken at Winterfell and feature Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Lord Varys (Conleth Hill), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Bran Stark aka The Three-Eyed Raven (Isaac Hempstead Wright), Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham) and Samwell Tarly (John Bradley-West).
Despite the many deaths, the cast is still pretty huge so there are many important characters not featured. Most noticeably absent are any shots of the Night King and his terrifying White Walker army.
