Looks like we're going to have to wait for at least one more normal winter to pass before Game of Thrones' super-winter arrives. For that reason, the 2019 eighth season wrap buys one of those prequels much-needed time - time to undergo script development, and perhaps time to get a pilot order.
Because when GoT does finally return in 2019, there will only be six - count 'em! - six episodes for the entire season. Also, with season 7 contending for Emmy awards in 2018 due to its summer launch a year ago, HBO can focus its GoT promotional efforts on its Emmy campaign rather than launching a new season. Since then, star Sophie Turner let slip in a recent interview that she didn't expect the show to come back until next year either. Also, filming didn't begin until October 2017, and the cast is still busy shooting the six-episode season. A specific premiere date has yet to be revealed, and HBO's announcement declined to provide anything more than writers, producers and directors associated with the fantasy juggernaut.
The fans are extremely excited for this release, and many already have different ideas about what will happen in the final season. But it will take a bit longer for the final season of Game of Thrones to catch up.
