There are just six episodes left of Game of Thrones. Ever. That's it. Gone. Donezo. We've known this for some time, but as the final season creeps ever closer it's really starting to sink in.

Ahead of the final season we have a lot of questions. Will Jaime really kill Cersei? Will Jon Snow ride a dragon? And is he Azor Ahai reborn? Or is that Daenerys? Or someone else entirely?

We're going to have to wait for the answers. HBO have kept details tightly under wraps this time around - they're desperate to avoid spoilers after the entirety of season 7 was leaked online ahead of release.

But several interesting nuggets of news have been made public - some by HBO themselves, some by the cast, and some by eagle-eyed fans on the lookout any GoT-related stories they can find in this long wait for season 8.

Here's everything we know so far about the release date, cast, plot, and what key figures have had to say about the show's last hurrah. Some spoilers!

When will season 8 air?

We don't have a set date yet, but HBO have confirmed it will be 2019, and likely earlier rather than later.

The network's programming president, Casey Bloys, said in July that the first episode will air in the "first half" of the year.

Season 7 was delayed until July 2017 because more filming needed to be done during winter, to coincide with the changing of the seasons in Westeros.

However, there is also a chance we may have to wait until May.

Visual effects supervisor Joe Bauer hinted in a recent interview that the final season may not be eligible for the Emmys until 2020. That would mean most of the season would not have aired before the 31 May Emmys deadline.

Is there a trailer?

  Game of Thrones season 8: What we know so far - from release date and cast to plot spoilers © Provided by Johnston Publishing Ltd

Yes! Well, a teaser - it only includes about a second of new footage.

That footage shows Jon Snow hugging a steely-eyed Sansa at Winterfell, and is cut among scenes from season seven including Daenerys and Drogon torching Lannister soldiers and Cersei and Jon facing off in the Dragonpit at King's Landing.

More revealing trailers will come in the coming months, but Game of Thrones traditionally likes to keep its promo material very vague, and sometimes makes it deliberately misleading to try and throw fans off the scent of key storylines.

Game of Thrones Season 8 was announced by D.B. Weiss and David Benioff on March 12, 2017 and in June 2016, HBO programming president Casey Bloys announced Season 8 would be the hit show's last. The hit show is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy

In the season 7 trailer, fans were made to fear for Jon Snow (again) when footage of him riding out Beyond the Wall alone was accompanied with voiceover of Sansa saying, "The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives". In the end, we discovered Sansa was actually quoting her father while speaking to Arya, and Jon ended the season safe and sound (well, as safe as you can be when you're heading North to take on a White Walker army).

Who's joining the cast?

Being the last season, don't expect to see too many new characters strolling in next spring - the last six episodes will focus on the ones we've come to know and love (and hate) over the last seven years.

The biggest piece of casting news - and the only named character cast for season 8 publicly so far - is German actor Marc Rissmann taking on the role of Harry Strickland.

In the books, Strickland is the leader of the Golden Company, the army of mercenaries from Essos which Euron Greyjoy sails off to bring back for Cersei at the end of season 7.

A number of smaller, unnamed roles have also been cast, which you can read about here.

One person who won't be appearing in the final season is Mark Gatiss - who plays head of the Iron Bank Tycho Nestoris. He's confirmed his time on the show is over.

As we said before, plot details are being held very close to HBO's chest, which is definitely for the best, but there are a few things we know.

No big spoilers are out in the open yet, but we'll still put a spoiler level ahead of each piece of information, so you can skip parts if you want to go into season 8 completely in the dark.

Peter Dinklage spoke to Entertainment Weekly about how Tyrion's relationship with Daenerys will develop in season 8, admitting his character does have feelings for his queen.

"It’s complicated," he said. "A lot of the time with Tyrion, it’s professional and personal. Obviously, he has feelings for Daenerys. He loves her - or thinks he does. She’s awe-inspiring. He’s questioning that because he doesn’t have a good track record for falling in love. There’s jealousy wrapped up in there.

"He loves Jon Snow, too. They’re the two people he has the most in common with, in a way - they’re both outsiders in their own families who have refused to follow the path their family has taken, and hopefully for the better.

"He’s wondering how smart of a move [Jon and Daenerys getting together is], because passion and politics don’t mix well. He knows the two of them getting together could be very dangerous."

Game of Thrones season 8 : everything we know so far . Game of Thrones wrapped up its seventh and penultimate season in August 2017, leaving fans with plenty to speculate on the fates According to a statement that HBO released in January, Game of Thrones will return for its final season in 2019.

With the Season 8 premiere still potentially a year away, here’s everything we know will happen on “ Game of Thrones .” Though an exact date has yet to be confirmed or revealed, fans do know the series is not coming back until 2019, meaning that it would be the longest wait fans have endured yet

In August HBO released the script for the final episode of season 7, "The Dragon and the Wolf" which all but confirmed what we already heavily suspected - Tormund and Beric survived the Wall crashing down at the hands of the Night King's new undead dragon.

The script says the pair "run for their lives and disappear from view", meaning we're 99.9 per cent certain to be seeing them again. Praise the gods - it wouldn't be fair to lose Tormund yet.

It was confirmed way back in April that cast and crew spent an incredible 55 nights filming a single battle on set in Northern Ireland.

The location means the battle takes place in the North - more specifically at Winterfell - and the most likely cause would be the Night King's army waging war on Jon Snow and co. on their march down Westeros.

To put this battle scene in perspective, the Battle of the Bastards took 25 days to film - less than half the time. This should be the show's biggest battle by a distance.

In a thank you note to the crew sent after wrapping, assistant director Jonathan Quinlan wrote: "When tens of millions of people around the world watch this episode a year from now, they won’t know hard you worked.

"They’ll just understand they’re watching something that’s never been done before."

Not only will season 8 feature Game of Thrones' biggest ever battle, it'll also feature its second biggest!

This one will be at King's Landing, and hints at a fair bit of destruction. Fan site A Red Priestess uploaded videos to its Twitter account of some of the set on fire.

It's estimated around 600 extras were used for this battle, which could again be a result of the White Walkers laying waste to the living. How much of Westeros will actually be left when this is all said and done?

Spoiler level: medium-high

A lawsuit between Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime, and his former agent, has revealed that the Danish actor is only down to appear in four of the six episodes in the final season.

This doesn't mean he's going to die in episode four, though - a couple of episodes may just skip his storyline.

What are the cast saying about it?

Unsurprisingly, everyone who's ever had even the vaguest association with the show is being asked about in constantly in interviews. Here are some of the highlights.

Kit Harington (Jon Snow) on expectation for the ending: "I don’t think everyone’s going to be happy. You can’t please everyone." A series that's spanned "eight or nine years will be incredibly difficult to end." - MTV News

Sophie Turner (Sansa) on how much death is coming: "What can you know… this season is bloodier than ever. It’s full of betrayal, full of war, full of danger. That’s all I can say without giving too much away." - Just Jared

Joe Dempsie (Gendry) on the duo he most wants to see meet up: "Definitely the Hound and the Mountain. They’re either saving it for something epic, or it will be one of those things they won’t be able to fit in, but I’d really love to see it." - Watchers on the Wall

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) on filming all together again: "Almost all of the season was shot in or around Belfast. So for the first time in all these years, the whole cast was, more or less, in town together the whole time. It was just a lot of fun to hang out and spend time together and appreciate what we’ve experienced and how lucky we are to be a part of this show." - Huffington Post

Natalie Dormer (Margaery) on whether ex-cast members know the ending: "I know A to B. I know what B is, but I don’t know how they get B. But I do know B." - The Hollywood Reporter
