Hold the Door: The Last Season of ‘Game of Thrones’ Might Be Pushed Back to 2019
Urgh, winter may be coming, but season eight of Game of Thrones sure as hell ain’t. That’s according to HBO programming president Casey Bloys, who recently hinted in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the final season of the hit show might be pushed back all the way to 2019.
It already feels like we've been waiting forever for season seven, and now we have to wait another two years to find out if Jon Snow and Daenerys are related what happens next? We haven’t been this upset since Hodor had to, um, hold the door.
Apparently Westeros whiz kids David Benioff and Dan Weiss are hard at work to get the final season written and aired. But when exactly that might be is unclear.
In the interview, Bloys was asked whether the final season could arrive as late as 2019, and he responded: "[The showrunners] have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule. We’ll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing."
Arya (sorry, we had to) as upset as we are? Here's hoping that season eight is worth the wait.
