Final "Game of Thrones" season will air in 2019

Final

Directors David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik are confirmed to return for season eight, but none of the casting has been revealed.

According to The Guardian, the fans will have to wait for a year as Game of Thrones will be reportedly returning in 2019.

Production giant HBO said on Thursday that Game of Thrones would return in 2019 for a six-episode final season.

The eighth season of the fantasy epic, which follows a number of great houses warring for control of the Iron Thrones on the fictional continent of Westeros, will be the series' finale.

"The executive producers of the series are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield". The others have all had roles creating the mythical world of author George RR Martin.

The seventh season ended last August to record viewers, with Foxtel saying it was the most watched overnight programme in Australian subscription television history. While some episodes may be longer than usual, once again we're hearing not to expect feature-length episodes throughout the season. An additional 4 million caught the episode on streaming channels.

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.

"Writers for the new season are David Benioff and D B Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill", it added. GOT star Sophie Turner previously told Variety that the production work of Season 8 of the series started in October and it is all set to air into the middle of this year.
