It’s been a long wait for Game of Thrones fans, yet patience paid off and the final season of the exceptionally popular series is finally confirmed. The eighth and final season will premiere in April 2019 on the 15th of April, and everyone can mark this Monday in their diaries according to Foxtel.
The seventh season of Game of Thrones ended in August 2017 and fans had quite a long wait ahead as the last season was said from the start to only air in 2019. It is the first announcement by Casey Bloys, who is the programming president of HBO. Bloys revealed that the first airing would take place in April 2019 at the summer tour in Beverley Hills at the Television Critics Association.
Game of Thrones – Six Episodes – Final
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will be six episodes long. Bloys would not say or reveal much but did describe the final as pretty great. Most fans can’t wait to see what happens to Daenerys Targaryen, who is played by Emilia Clarke or Jon Snow portrayed by Kit Harington. Bloys would only say that these two has a bumpy road ahead in the final season.
As with all the previous episodes and season, the final season of Game of Thrones is based and adapted on the novel by George RR Martin. When the leading lady, Emilia Clarke was asked about Daenerys Targaryen in the final season, she would not say much, but that the final is bound to divide the fans. Other spoilers shared by the cast indicates that the fans would be screaming that the end is what they always wanted and hope for, while others will simply be speechless.
Rumours Game of Thrones Final Season
Joe Dempsey has sort of hinted that his part is bigger. This is most surprising as season seven pretty much left him rowing in a boat. The 30 year-old-actor agrees that he was a bit of a slow starter, especially during the first few seasons. As the seasons or the years go on, he became more apparent, and several elements of his character make him either dangerous or powerful. It is impossible to know where his role takes him, and that is part of the big surprise according to rumours.
Game of Thrones Unpredictably Wonderful
The day the unpredictability was confirmed once and for all in Game of Thrones was when Ned Stark lost his head. Part of the success and popularity of the series is the unexpectedness of what is to follow, and no other fantasy drama has ever enjoyed the attention of millions. The filming of the eight-season of Game of Thrones started in Northern Ireland, Belfast in October 2017.
