Game of Thrones Season 8 won’t air until 2019, HBO confirmed
Right after when season 7 of HBO hit series “Game of Thrones” ended last summer. Everyone was wondering when will “Game of Thrones season 8” be coming. Well, HBO has confirmed that 8th and final season of “Game of Thrones” will air in 2019.
This news means that fans will have to wait much more longer than expected, to see their favorite characters in action. Although this a disappointing news for fans who were waiting eagerly to watch their favorite fantasy series this year. but more delay means that last season will much bigger than ever, because filming of last season has already started..
It was expected that show might not comeback in 2018, after show runners David Benioff and Dan Weiss said that they scheduled to spend one and a half year to film the last season of hit series, to make the remaining episodes of show amazing and satisfying for the audience. Show star Sophie Turner also hinted in an interview that season 8 of show might not air in 2018.
Still it isn’t clear that when will it return in 2019?, in start of 2019 or at the end, are two different things for the waiting fans. Show’s usual airing season is spring but then season 7 was pushed to summer last year.(but that also was because of a late filming schedule.) still it is not clear that when in 2019, the show will return.
It is already confirmed that final season will consist of 6 episodes. while the some episodes may be longer than usual. but still we can not expect to see episodes longer like a movie.
This GOT delay also gives author George R.R. Martin a chance to release the next book in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, The Winds of Winter, about which he said might be ready in 2018, before the next season of Game of Thrones. Martin also plans to write a final book “A Dream of Spring” in the series. but HBO will reveal its ending of GOT before that final book is released.
There are no news or spoilers about the content of the final season or what we might expect from the final season. but from the reputation of the show we can say that final season will be satisfying and amazing like all previous seasons.
