‘Game of Thrones’ is Filming Season 8 Until Summer 2018 (Which Means We Won’t See it For A While)

‘Game of Thrones’ is Filming Season 8 Until Summer 2018 (Which Means We Won’t See it For A While)
The long wait for “Game of Thrones” Season 8 just got even longer. HBO has not set an official premiere date for the final season, but it’s now looking increasingly likely that “Thrones” won’t be back on the air until 2019. The series has never been off the air for an entire year (the Season 7 premiere was delayed two months because of production but still debuted over the summer), but it’s now extremely doubtful the show will return at any point in summer 2018.

Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, revealed to TV Guide that production on the final season is expected to last from October until the start of the summer, which is around when the show would usually begin airing on HBO.

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Will Be Monumental

It’s the beginning of the end, folks.

Comprised of six episodes in total, down from the standard run of 10, Game of Thrones season 8 is now in production and looks set to deliver a fitting send-off to what’s been one of the greatest TV shows of the modern era. With the Night King on the march – perched on an undead Viserion, no less – and Cersei plotting a potentially devastating betrayal, the power players of Westeros will come together in epic fashion in 2019. And there’s also the small matter of Jon Snow’s true parentage.

So, there’s much to look forward to once the show returns then, and in a new interview with Huffington Post, star John Bradley, who plays Samwell Tarly on the hit fantasy series, promised big things to come. Speaking about the scale and scope of season 8, he teased that it’ll be “monumental.”
