HBO Officially Announces When Game of Thrones' Final Season Arrives

  • Nikolaj Coster Waldau appear in HBOs Game of Thrones 2017

"When you think about it, up until last season we would have six months to do 10 episodes, so we are doing way more than that for six episodes".

HBO makes it official an announces the final Season of Game of Thrones will debut in 2019.

The season 7 finale, "The Dragon and the Wolf", set a record in August when 16.5 million viewers watched. In other words, HBO had made it clear that it won't speed up production to meet a specific release window, so it's hard to make any predictions about a potential premiere date.

It's huge news because "GoT" is HBO's biggest hit ever.


The final season will only consist of six episodes, and many fans were hoping it would air sometime this year.

HBO announced previous year that the hit series would end with Season 8.

The news comes on the same day it emerged Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin has seen another of his books, Nightflyers, given the greenlight by Syfy in the United States and Netflix internationally. Writers for the new season are: "David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman, and Dave Hill". The series will not air its final episodes until 2019.

HBO's head of programming, Casey Bloys, has said multiple endings will be filmed to avoid leaks or hacks of how the saga ends. Only the GOT fans know that it is not only a fantasy drama television series. Benioff, Weiss, Carolyn Strauss and Frank Doelger will be the show's executive producers.
