Game Of Thrones fans are waking up to a bittersweet moment after the first official image from the show’s eighth and final season dropped online overnight.

Entertainment Weekly’s latest cover reveals the exclusive first look, an image of Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington in character as Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow.

Season seven saw the destinies of the two key characters finally brought together, and fans are anxious to see how their fates will play out as GOT wraps up.

An official premiere date for season eight is yet to be announced, but HBO has confirmed the six one-hour episodes – yes, just six – will air in the first half of 2019.

Winter is finally, finally coming.
