‘Game of Thrones’ final season will air in 2019

The highly anticipated season 8 of Game of Thrones will officially happen in 2019.

Season 8 of Game of Thrones, the final season of HBO’s smash hit fantasy series, will officially air in 2019, HBO announced today.

No release date has been given at this time. While most seasons of Game of Thrones began in April, last year’s season 7 did not premiere until July. Season 7 was also a truncated season at just seven episodes, though several were over an hour long.

Season 8 is easily the most anticipated of the entire series, and not just because it’s the last one. 2017’s season 7 was the highest rated in the show’s history, with the season finale being watched by some 16.5 million people. Another indicator that season 7 was hotly anticipated: HBO was subject to several attacks, resulting in leaks of a few episodes throughout the season.

At the very least, we have one calendar year until the finale to Game of Thrones. Can you wait that long?

Here’s the complete press release from HBO:

The epic fantasy series Game of Thrones will return for its six-episode, eighth and final season in 2019.

David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season. Writers for the new season are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.

The executive producers of the series are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield. Co-executive producers are Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin.
