We’re all waiting for season 8 of Game Of Thrones but it looks like we have to wait a lot longer than we thought!
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, has confirmed that the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones won’t air until 2019.
Sophie told Variety: “I’m really excited. Game of Thrones comes out in 2019.”
This news is after HBO president Casey Bloys hinted that the shortened season eight may be delayed for an entire year, telling Entertainment Weekly that producers want to make sure the finale is “cinematic”.
“One of the hallmarks of the show has been how cinematic it is. The show has proven that TV is every bit as impressive and in many cases more so, than film. What they’re doing is monumental.
“When you see these battles in season 7, and what I imagine season 8 will be, it’s a big, big show. We’ve done a lot of great shows, but this one combines the complex characters we love with a huge cinematic scope.
“I think this is the first show to prove that can be done — and we’re the first people to pay for it.”
