At long last, the time has come to start teasing Game of Thrones season 8, the final outing for the hit show. (Until the spinoff series launches, that is.)

Entertainment Weekly released the first official image of the season on its Twitter account on Thursday. It seems that Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) are going to continue down the path they began at the end of season 7.

We still don't have a definitive debut date for Game of Thrones season 8 beyond "2019," but if the marketing machine is firing up, we can hope it's sooner rather than later.
