Because what better time than a winter storm for ominous Game of Thrones news? That dreadful day has finally arrived, as HBO confirms the eighth and final season will sit out 2018 altogether, finishing its adapted Song of Ice and Fire in 2019.
The past week has seen any number of Hollywood misdeeds come to light, even among those beloved by fans. Now Ben Affleck’s fellow Justice League star Jason Momoa speaks up to head off some resurfaced comments from years past with regard to his Game of Thrones role.
HBO will confirm few details of the eighth and final Game of Thrones season; perhaps least of all whether we’ll wait until 2019 to see it. That said, star Liam Cunningham may have guaranteed the fantasy blockbuster will sit out 2018 with an update on production.
Game of Thrones’ TV budget has taken its toll here and there, but few would question Season 8’s dedication to an epic end. As such, one star promises Game of Thrones will uphold its traditional commitment to climactic ninth episodes at least six times over.
