The wintry wait for “Game of Thrones” isn’t over, but fans at least officially know when the suspense will end.

HBO had previously said only that the show will return in April but announced yesterday that its signature series will begin its final season on April 14.

Just six episodes remain of the program, although many installments of the eighth and final season are expected to run longer than an hour, as the producers endeavor to bring the TV version of George R.R. Martin’s epic fantasy tale to a satisfying close.

The seventh-season finale set a ratings record in 2017, attracting 16.5 million viewers on HBO and via same-day streaming, according to Nielsen data.
The premiere puts the series finale date at May 19.
