It’s looking increasingly like we’re going to have to wait until 2019 to discover who wins the Game of Thrones.
While we’ve suspected as much for a while, given HBO’s production schedule, actress Sophie Turner has affirmed the impression that the final series won’t air in 2018.
Speaking to Variety, Turner — who plays Sansa Stark in the hit show — said there are still more than six months of production left on Season 8.

When asked about her 2018 excitement levels, Turner said: “Yeah, I’m really excited. Game of Thrones comes out in 2019. [X-Men:] Dark Phoenix is in November. Then I have a couple indie movies coming out. I’m a producer on my next movie [Girl Who Fell From the Sky]. So I’m really excited about the future.”
When Variety quizzed her about the production schedule, she added: “We started in October, so we’re maybe like a tenth of the way through. [Laughs.] No, no, we’ve got six or seven months left.”
In response to the quotes, a HBO spokesperson refused to confirm the air date (via Polygon).
The last official word we got was from HBO was from president of programming, Casey Bloys, who said the air date would depend a lot on how quickly the writers completed the episodes.
“They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule,” Bloys said in June.
“We’ll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.”
There are just six episodes left in the final series, although some of which are likely to be feature-length.
Season 7 ended with all of the (surviving) characters well placed to make their move on the Iron Throne, but facing up to the terrifying reality of the White Walkers’ advance beyond the wall.
