The final season of Game Of Thrones is sooooooo nearly upon us! Trust us, 14th April cannot come soon enough. So here’s everything we know about GOT season 8 so far.
Game Of Thrones season 8 release date
Game Of Thrones season 8 release date is… drum roll please… 14th April 2019!
Ages and ages ago HBO confirmed in an official statement that Game Of Thronesseason 8 wouldn’t be with us until 2019.
The statement read: “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.”
We kinda already knew this because Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark confirmed to Variety that the eighth and final season of GOT won’t air until 2019 but we were hoping she might have got her wires crossed or summat. She said: “I’m really excited. Game Of Thrones comes out in 2019.” She added that HBO’s hit series still has “six or seven months left” of production, before joking, “we started in October, so we’re maybe like a tenth of the way through.”
