Games Of Thrones Season 8 In Coming In 2019

Can't wait for Game of Thrones season 8? Keep yourself entertained in 2018 with these 5 TV series

HBO announced Thursday that the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will not air until 2019. David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the other directors for the new season, and writers include Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill. The final season will be a mere six episodes long - the shortest season to date - which may add to the disappointment for some. Benioff and Weiss executive produce along with Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield. "Whereas before, every year there's always been a bit of pressure, this season is one where we could easily let people down". Also, with season 7 contending for Emmy awards in 2018 due to its summer launch a year ago, HBO can focus its GoT promotional efforts on its Emmy campaign rather than launching a new season. There was also some logic to its reticence: HBO also said that it had commissioned five prequels, one of which would be expected to go to air.

If not, at least fans will be hyped for 2019. Also, filming didn't begin until October 2017, and the cast is still busy shooting the six-episode season. Not only is it becoming unusual to wait more than a week between episodes, but the time between seasons now feels interminable.

As the final season is expected to feature a lot of battle scenes, the show may require more special effects. HBO took to their website to bring forth their confirmation and included among the post were details on the big names running the final season. When the book does arrive, it will be the publishing event of the year, alongside the TV event of the decade.
