We got our first clip of Meryl Streep in "Big Little Lies" Season 2, the first look at "True Detective" Season 3 (before a full trailer followed), a look at the final season of "Veep," and a glimpse of "Game of Thrones" Season 8.

The footage came in a new hype video promoting the premium network's upcoming offerings, and provided new scenes featuring fan-favorite characters like Jon Snow, Sansa Stark, and Jaime Lannister.

Most of the Thrones scenes in the preview were pulled from the show's seventh season. At io9, Beth Elderkin jokingly runs through a number of theories one might be able to parse from the footage, and people were pretty excited on Twitter.

If the "Sharp Objects" finale (and that mid-credits sequence) didn't keep you up all night, then surely the first look at new seasons of "Game of Thrones" and "Big Little Lies" screwed with your sleep cycle.

'The prequel is starting to shoot in February, at least the pilot, ' he said.


They speculate a more likely premiere date of June or July, and visual effects work is a fairly essential post-production process, but HBO hold all of the cards at this point.

HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys previously stated that season 8 would debut in the first half of 2019, which isn't that far off, now.

He added: "So much of it comes down to timing and all that stuff".

The executive producers of Game of Thrones Season 8 are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; and producers are Chris Newman, Greg Spence and Lisa McAtackney. There's also a flurry of super fast shots near the end which might contain new footage.

The season 8 glimpse showed Jon Snow (Kit Harington) embracing Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner).
