The footage was shown as part of a teaser trailer from American broadcaster HBO, which promoted a host of upcoming new shows and returning favourites including Game Of Thrones, Big Little Lies and True Detective.

In a tweet, it wrote alongside the video: “Let the countdown begin.”

The epic fantasy series, based on the books penned by George RR Martin, will air its final series in 2019.

The new footage shows Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) and Sansa (played by Sophie Turner) embracing, and also shows Jon speaking to Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke).
