But what happens in the battle against the White Walkers? And who will finally get to hold on to the Iron Throne? Here's what we know.

How does Game of Thrones end?

The short answer is, we don't know yet!

The plot of the final series has been kept almost completely under wraps, meaning only a select few people know the actual ending.

HBO president Casey Blows has seen the final series and he is confident fans will be satisfied with the ending – although his opinion may be a little biased.

“Everything I have seen makes me very, very confident that this is a [season] fans are going to be very happy with,” he told TVLine.

“It is a dramatically and emotionally thrilling way to end the series. I believe it will live up to the very high expectations.”

What does it say in the Game Of Thrones book series?

Novelist George RR Martin has had the ending of the books mapped out in his head ever since he wrote the first sentence of his A Song of Ice and Fire series.

But it's taking him longer than anticipated to finish the next instalment of the epic book series.

So fans are still waiting for the final two book, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.

The previous novel A Dance with Dragons was published in 2011.

The 70-year-old fantasy writer has admitted that even he has no idea how the HBO series will end.

The show has already deviated from the books in key ways so George doesn't know how the game will end on the small screen.

When does the final season Game of Thrones start?

The final series of Game of Thrones begins TONIGHT April 14 in the US and will air on April 15 on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

You can also watch on NOW TV, with an Entertainment pass.
