HBO® Serves up Some Game of Thrones Goodness this Thanksgiving

Game of Thrones

For long-time fans of the fantasy favorite Game of Thrones, 2019 can’t come soon enough. And with it, comes the long-awaited eighth season. Xfinity Internet customers can stream the entire series (so far) using Xfinity Stream during the HBO free preview weekend from Wednesday, November 21 to Sunday, November 25, but that may not be enough to satisfy the ultimate Thrones fan’s craving for more dragons, White Walkers, and (of course) more quotable one-liners from Tyrion Lannister himself. Wondering when the highly anticipated final season of Game of Thrones will premiere? We’ve got all the info you need on the Game of Thrones season 8 release date right here.

A Thanksgiving feast for fans

HBO has a track record for keeping information surrounding their hit series veiled in secrecy. That being said, any information about Game of Thrones and its upcoming final season is as valuable as a dragon’s egg to mega-fans who just can’t wait to dive back in to the world of Westeros. Luckily, some hints have already been dropped by HBO, and the network tends to “thank” their fans each Thanksgiving holiday by dropping a major bombshell about the show: a “feast for fans,” if you will.

As this Thanksgiving season comes upon us, we’re left to wonder what HBO might reveal about the eighth season of Game of Thrones. Earlier in November HBO announced a season 8 release date of April 2019, which means that the return to Westeros is coming sooner than some initially anticipated.

HBO also gave fans a season 8 trailer (albeit in the form of a sixty-second teaser with footage from previous seasons), which you can view here:

It’s hard to say what other Thrones news will be revealed this Thanksgiving season, but the trailer and release date alone have fans buzzing with excitement for what’s to come.

Playing catch-up?

For some of you, perhaps the Game of Thrones journey has just begun, or is yet to begin. If you’ve never watched the show but would like to see for yourself what all the hype is about, the HBO free preview weekend over the Thanksgiving holiday is a great opportunity to to watch the series in its entirety so far.

So, what are you waiting for? Get caught up on Game of Thrones and other critically-acclaimed HBO hits during Xfinity’s HBO free preview weekend, and prepare yourself for the upcoming Game of Thrones season 8 premiere.
