Yesterday (14 April), the official GoT Twitter account posted: "Winter is coming," and fans were quick to jump to assumptions.
Winter is coming.
- Game of Thrones (@GameOfThrones) April 14, 2021
In response, one person wrote: "Between us I'm ALL IN on us pretending it's early 2019, season 8 hasn't happened yet, and doing the damn thing fresh. Our secret!"
Another wrote: "Remake the god awful Season 8 and make it actually good and I'll be coming."
A third seemed sceptical but into the idea, writing: "Never before have I seen a series nose dive so hard and be abandoned by its fans and viewers. I'm currently re-watching the show and it physically hurts to know how unrewarding the finale is. If y'all can revive this franchise, it would be a miracle."
However, another fan suggested it might be more complicated than that, writing: "Truth is, they would have to remake season 7 too. In the first season it took three eps to get from Winterfell to King's Landing. In season 7 it took Daenerys a few hours by dragon. Season 7 sucked too."
We get it, you weren't a fan of Season 7.
Not everyone was on board with this, though.
One fan defended the final season, writing: "Some of the responses here are crazy.
"Yeah, season 8 was a bit rushed and possibly not what some fans wanted but it was still amazing with some epic scenes. Acting like spoilt brats who didn't get the season they wanted is just embarrassing."
Another added: "I personally really enjoyed S8. I've been watching the show since early 2013. It's my fav show of the decade.
"I do wish some of the bigger Mysteries were unravelled but personally I love having questions left unanswered."
Of course, the tweet from GoT could also just be there to tease the 10-year anniversary, which began on 10 April - dubbed The Iron Anniversary.
HBO will be screening a marathon of all eight seasons, and there'll be special edition products for fans to feast their eyes on throughout the month too.
This will be perfect for die-hard fans wishing to re-watch the entire thing and also newbies who will use this opportunity to get up to date with what the world has been talking about for the last decade.
And for anyone hoping for more, there's always forthcoming prequel series House of the Dragon to look forward to.
Truly, a great time to be a GoT fan.
