"Game of Thrones" to return in 2019 for final season

Game of Thrones returns in 2019, HBO confirms for first time

If reports are to be believed, the episodes of the upcoming series will be longer compared to the previous ones.

Fans were eagerly waiting for the season finale as it is expected to reveal which of the warring families in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros will win the multigenerational struggle for control of the mega Iron Throne.

For the lovers of series and movies, Game of Thrones season eight is set to sir in 2019.

HBO said that David Benioff, DB Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will direct and Benioff and Weiss along with Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill will write the episodes.

Yep, we'll have to wait at least a whole year for the final season of our fave fantasy series - which will consist of just six episodes.

The news comes on the same day it emerged Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin has seen another of his books, Nightflyers, given the greenlight by Syfy in the USA and Netflix internationally.

The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran. They are virtually in every city in Iran.

This is disappointing news for fans of the hit show who were hoping for a 2018 release date.

The GoT pushback also gives author George R.R. Martin more runway to potentially release the next book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds of Winter, which he teased last summer might be ready in 2018.

GOT Season 7 was aired over the past summer. Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin as co-executive producers.

Filming for the final season started in October past year, and is expected to continue until mid-2018.

The fans are extremely excited for this release, and many already have different ideas about what will happen in the final season.
