  Game of Thrones has just released a new teaser trailer for its upcoming, final season 8. With only a few months left until the premiere, the fans have long been waiting for a chance to peek behind the curtain. Is it what they were waiting for? Or just an appetiser before the actual trailer comes out?   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NspqGM0DbbQ Even though the teaser is 39 seconds long and doesn’t show any actual footage, it’s enticing enough to push many into a winter-long binge of previous seasons.
