Though it will contain the least episodes of any Game of Thrones season (six), you can expect them to be on the longer side as the story becomes more movie-like and epic in scope.

HBO made an official announcement that "Game of Thrones" Season 8 is officially returning in next year. Miguel Sapochnick will also be back for two episodes, after directing two each in season 5 and season 6 and sitting out season 7.

Ben Crompton, who plays Night's Watch brother Eddison Tollett in the HBO series, is now filming the eighth season and revealed how there's still a fair amount of shooting left on the project.

There were no other details given for the eighth and final season - notably episode length, titles or airdates - although directors and writers were revealed.

There was no month specified for the 2019 launch, but it will have been well over a year since season seven aired by even the earliest possible airdate.


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

M - The eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" won't air until 2019, HBO confirmed. Writers are Benioff & Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill. Only the GOT fans know that it is not only a fantasy drama television series.

The delay is suspected to give Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin a window to release his long-awaited novel The Winds of Winter from his Fire and Blood series.

The executive producers are Benioff, Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield.
