The final season of Game of Thrones to be aired from April 15 to May 20

World’s biggest TV show, Game of Thrones returns on Sunday (Monday morning in India) for its eighth and final season, which will have a shortened run of just six weeks.  With the magic, ice Wall having been brought down at the end of the last season, the living and the dead will naturally face off each other, with mankind’s survival in Westeros ultimately at stake. Along the way, in Game of Thrones season 8, a lot of your favourite characters will no doubt die due to their participation in the conflict.

Game of Thrones still has a pretty sizeable ensemble cast of main and supporting characters.

Then we have three Starks and Lannisters apiece: Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), and Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) aka the Three-Eyed Raven; Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).
