"Game of Thrones" fans have eagerly been awaiting the arrival of Season 8, and on Sunday they were given a brief glimpse of what to expect in a surprise video released by HBO.

Footage of the final series is buried in scenes from previous seasons of "Game of Thrones," and it would take a keen eye to separate the new from the old, but there are definitely some teasers included in the video that touts the cable network's 2019 lineup, Entertainment Weekly reported.

A particularly noteworthy moment, which could easily be mistaken as a scene from Season 7, shows Jon Snow (Kit Harington) embracing Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) in a reunion at Winterfell.

The teaser trailer comes amid rumors that the final six episodes of "Game of Thrones," scheduled to air during the first half of 2019, has been delayed.

Speculation was sparked after visual effects supervisor Joe Bauer discussed the show's eligibility for the Emmys with the HuffPost.

In order for a show to qualify for a 2019 Emmy award, it would have to air between June 1, 2018, and May 31, 2019.

"Game of Thrones" would have to be aired before the end of May to be eligible for the next Emmy but Bauer said they were "going to be toiling away on Season 8 until May of 2019."

He added that he was "not doing anything else but 'Thrones' until May of next year."

A rep from HBO told HuffPost that an airdate for "Game of Thrones" has not been announced but the show is expected to air in the first half of 2019.

The network added that it expected to air all its episodes in time for the 2019 Emmy eligibility cut off, Entertainment Weekly said.
