“Game of Thrones” Fans Will Have to Wait Until 2019 for the Final Season
We kind of knew this was coming, but now it’s official. The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” will NOT air this year. Yesterday HBO announced it’ll premiere sometime in 2019. So far that’s all we know.
If history is any indication, it’ll probably be in the first half of 2019. Seasons One through Six aired in the spring. Season Seven aired last summer, and the finale was in August.
That means fans will have to go at least 16 months between Seasons Seven and Eight, and possibly upwards of TWO YEARS. That’s a long time to wait, especially since the final season is only SIX episodes.
