Forget Winter: The End Is Next Year For ‘GoT’


The most popular series on HBO is coming to an end.

But, the network confirmed Thursday that Game of Thrones won’t return for its eighth and final season until 2019.

The Time Warner owned premium MVPD-distributed network did not say when in 2019 the final season of “GoT” will air. However, production on the final season began in October 2017 and is expected to conclude in early Q3, MarketWatch reports.

The concluding episode of the show’s seventh season attracted 12.1 million viewers, and was the most-watched episode in the series’ tenure on HBO.
