Confirming what has already been known somewhat unofficially, HBO has announced for the first time that the final season of Game of Thrones will not return until 2019. This is a little disappointing but not at all unexpected, as the final episodes of the series are looking to be bigger and more cinematic than ever. Game of Thrones' final season will consist of 6 episodes and it has been rumored that most of them will extended or even pushing feature length. From HBO:
The epic fantasy series Game of Thrones will return for its six-episode, eighth and final season in 2019.
David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season. Writers for the new season are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
The executive producers of the series are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield. Co-executive producers are Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin.
