CONFIRMED: The Final Season Of HBO's GAME OF THRONES Won't Air Until Next Year

It was heavily rumored already, but HBO has now confirmed that final six episodes of its hit fantasy drama series Game of Thrones won't air until next year. Check out the press release after the jump...

HBO has finally confirmed the bad news: the final six episodes of Game of Thrones will not air until 2019.

The network shared a brief press release with Watchers on The Wall:


Your readers may be interested to know that the hit HBO series GAME OF THRONES will return for its six-episode, eighth and final season in 2019.

Directors for the new season are: David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik. Writers for the new season are: David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill. Season seven credits: The executive producers of GAME OF THRONES are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers, Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin.

As disappointing as this news will be for Westeros fans, it does make the most sense from a creative standpoint. The show has become more and more expensive and time consuming to produce over the years, and the last thing anyone wants is for the highly-anticipated conclusion to be rushed.

Though a 2019 return for Game of Thrones was all-but confirmed anyway, how do you guys feel now that it's been made official? Drop us a comment in the usual place.
