HBO just announced that Game of Thrones final season, season eight, will be premiering in 2019.

Last summer, EW was first to report that GoT might skip 2018, after the show's showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss explained they planned to spend a year and a half crafting the show's final episodes in an effort to make the final hours as spectacular and satisfying as possible (the eighth season, now in production, is expected to film until this summer). Leaving fans with only seven episodes as opposed to its typical 10 episode season.

For Games of Thrones fans, winter isn't coming for a while.

As Entertainment Weekly previously noted, the show taking so long to come out may be bad news for fans, but welcomed news to HBO.

The television series has already advanced beyond the events of George RR Martin's five published novels in his A Song of Ice and Fire series. Writers for the new season are: "David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman, and Dave Hill".


Weiss and Benioff have been co-creators, executive producers and showrunners for every season of the hit show.

Game of Thrones Season 7 aired in summer of 2017 and previous seasons had usually run in the spring.

The series ending has been dragged on for quite some time.

Foxtel's Showcase airs Game of Thrones episodes at the same time as the USA, so Australia's release date should be go hand-in-hand with America's once it's announced.

If not, at least fans will be hyped for 2019.
