    "Game Of Thrones" Season 8 Will Be Back Sooner Than You Think, In The First Half Of 2019

    All men must wait.

    Hi, hello, today is a good day for Game of Thrones fans because we now know when the next and final (*SOBS LOUDLY*) season will air: the first half of 2019.

    Although, I don't have a SPECIFIC day and month to go with that. Sorry.

    Now, the first half of 2019 covers A WIDE RANGE, I know... But this is good because we won't have to wait as long as we did for Season 7.

    Season 7 started a little later than usual — July, for the record — compared to the previous six seasons, which usually started in late March or early April.

    Speaking at a Television Critics Association event today, HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys revealed this good news and added that the new Thrones spin-off prequel series has started searching for a director and casting director!

    According to the Hollywood Reporter, Bloys added the new show — which takes place during the Long Night — will be "shooting sometime in the new year."

    Looks like 2019 is shaping up to be a very good Game of Thrones year.

    Me, waiting until then.
