HBO has announced that the final season of the fantasy series won't premiere until 2019. Last year, actress Sophie Turner revealed that the final season will return only in 2019, however, this is the first time HBO has officially confirmed it. The others have all had roles creating the mythical world of author George R.R. Martin. A seven-episode seventh season hit screens last summer and the final run will extend over just six episodes.

"Also, with season seven contending for Emmy awards in 2018 due to its summer launch previous year, HBO can focus its GoT promotional efforts on its Emmy campaign rather than launching a new season". Fans have to wait nearly two years before any new episodes are released.

Game of Thrones is HBO's biggest-ever hit, with an army of devoted fans worldwide and some 30 million viewers in the United States alone.
