Game Of Thrones’ Final Season Won’t Air Until 2019!

You thought the dry spell between seasons six and seven was rough, Game of Thrones fans? Prepare for the longest drought yet!

On Thursday, HBO revealed the eighth and final season won’t be airing until 2019, confirming it would be moving at a glacial, George R.R. Martin pace for the remainder of production.

This news shouldn’t come as a huge shock, however, as the final season is expected to take place over eight months.

Production on the final six (likely Mountain-sized) episodes began in October and will reportedly run through August 2018 — a full YEAR after the season seven finale. Sounds like it will be well worth the wait!

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will write and direct the episodes. Other writers include Dave Hill and Bryan Cogman, who is also a creator one of the Thrones prequel series currently being developed at HBO.

So, what are fans of the show to do in the meantime? For starters, you now have time to read the books…
