Bad news, Game of Thrones enthusiasts: The show’s final season won’t be approaching to HBO anytime this season, regarding to HBO.
On Thursday night, the network officially declared the eighth and last season will drop in 2019, Variety information. Shooting on the final six episodes started out last October, and production is defined to continue through the center of 2018, which could donate to the months-long hold off. That complete multiple-decoy-endings thing probably doesn’t help it along, either.

That’s good news for anybody who’s been pretending to view the show and must catch up after its last seven-episode season, and bad information for just about any of its superfans craving the show’s zombie dragons and incest crisis. A record 16.5 million audiences tuned in to the season seven finale previous August, not to mention the people who pirated the show more than a billion times last year.
HBO didn’t say when exactly GoT will be coming back in 2019 or hint at what we would maintain for, only disclosing that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik, will be directing the shows, with Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill supporting the showrunners write them.
If nothing at all else, the announcement makes a straight stronger case that 2019 is going to be a solid time for Television set, since we probably won’t be getting more Rick and Morty until then, too.
