It's official - "Game of Thrones" fans will have to wait until 2019 for the eighth and final season of HBO's hit series.
In fact, when it's all said and done, we might not be too far short of a 10-episode series, in terms of overall runtime.
The final season of Game of Thrones will feature veterans of the show behind the scenes when it airs in 2019.
HBOhas confirmed that the final installment of its biggest-ever hit won't be released until some time in 2019, the Guardian reports.
That means the medieval fantasy is sitting out 2018 entirely as has always been rumored even before actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, made the big reveal in Variety last month.
A seven-episode seventh season hit screens last summer and the final run will extend over six episodes.
A lot of fans are sure to be saddened by this news as rumours have been circulating for some time that season eight was set to air in 2018. "David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season".
When you see these battles in season 7, and what I imagine season 8 will be, it's a big, big show. Also, with season 7 contending for Emmy awards in 2018 due to its summer launch a year ago, HBO can focus its GoT promotional efforts on its Emmy campaign rather than launching a new season. Production on Season 8 started in October and will reportedly last until August 2018 - a full year after Season 7's finale will be shown.
