Game of Thrones fans have been waiting patiently to find out if the show was coming on 2018 or 2019.HBO has now confirmed that Game of Thrones Season 8 is coming in 2019.

The Emmy-winning sensation won't be back for its final season until 2019.

Last summer, EW was first to report that GoT might skip 2018, after the show's showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss explained they planned to spend a year and a half crafting the show's final episodes in an effort to make the final hours as spectacular and satisfying as possible (the eighth season, now in production, is expected to film until this summer). Multiple endings will be filmed so that it can be ensured that the real ending is protected from leaks and hacks. GOT star Sophie Turner previously told Variety that the production work of Season 8 of the series started in October and it is all set to air into the middle of this year.

HBO did not specify an air date, or even the exact month of the premiere, but said that the season will have 6 episodes.

The seventh season ended last August with an average of more than 30 million USA viewers per episode across multiple platforms.

But the question on fans' minds is when, exactly, will GoT return? HBO is silent on that front.

Big news for GOT fans, the show won't return until 2019 and the fans have to wait for a long time - a complete year! Inn addition to this, this delay can give ample time for George R.R. Martin, the author, more time to waork on other projects such as his next book, "The Winds of Winter" which he said would be released this year.
