The eighth and final season of the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones was confirmed by HBO in July 2016. Unlike the first six seasons that all consisted of ten episodes, and the seventh which consisted of seven episodes, the eighth season will consist of only six episodes, and is set to air in 2019. Like the previous season, it will largely consist of original content currently not found in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, and will instead adapt material Martin revealed to showrunners about the upcoming novels in the series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said that the final season could air in 2018 or later in 2019, adding that they have to figure out the production schedule for this “extremely cinematic” finale season first. Are you ready for season-8?
