Game of Thrones season 8 premiere date: When will it start?

It's going to be another long wait, with official word coming from HBO that the eighth and final season will arrive in 2019. This was later narrowed down to "the first half of 2019" – which we suppose is slightly better.
And now, after narrowing it down even further to April, HBO has finally confirmed a premiere date of Sunday, April 14, 2019.
UK broadcaster Sky Atlantic has also confirmed that the final series will be simulcast on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV at 2am on Monday, April 15 alongside the US's HBO airing. It will then air again at 9pm on Monday night in the UK.
It fits with the timeline that had previously been tipped by by Sansa actress Sophie Turner – with her on-screen sibling Maisie Williams later suggesting an April return date too. However, Williams later denied releasing that info, posting on Twitter that the quote was "completely false and taken from an interview I did years ago".

HBO President Casey Bloys had previously promised a lengthy hiatus: "[David Benioff and Dan Weiss, showrunners] have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule We'll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing."
"We honestly don't know yet [when the final episodes will air]," Benioff admitted. "There's been a lot of back and forth about air dates. That's a long way off from being settled."
