‘GAME OF THRONES’ Season 8 Won’t Air Till 2019

June 3, 2017


HBO’s Programming President Casey Bloys spoke recently with EW and was asked about the final season of GAME OF THRONES, and he revealed that it won’t air until 2019.

“Yeah. They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule. We’ll have a better sense of that once they [showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] get further into the writing.”

Bloys also spoke about Benioff and Weiss’ involvement about the prequel series, five of which are currently in development.

“They came into HBO with an idea for a show with a beginning, middle, and end, and they want to see it through. In conversations with them, they feel if their name is on the prequels– even in a passive way– it conveys some sort of expectation or responsibility. They want to enjoy the show as fans and don’t want to worry about the scripts or production issues. We were hoping to have their names on it out of respect for them, but we understand why they don’t want that.”

At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to  Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent.
