Revealed: The release date for Game of Thrones season 8
Mark your calendars
Fans of HBO's Game of Thrones are used to waiting, however it seems that they may not have to wait as long as originally thought for the final season of the show to air with Maisie Williams revealing when the last episodes are due to hit the air.
Overnight, the star (who plays Arya Stark in the hit series) spoke with Metro and announced that the season will air from April 2019.
"We wrap in December and we are air our first episode in April 2019," she explained. "That's a four month turnaround for these huge episodes. There's a lot that goes into the final edit. You would not want to rush this season at all. We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities."
Notorious for ending seasons on jaw-dropping cliffhangers, season 7 left fans with plenty of unanswered questions. We predict season 8 will be one of the show's most-watched seasons yet.
