HBO Finally Gave Us A Release Date For ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 8

Published

Game of Thrones has become HBO’s biggest franchises of all time. The series creators took on a nearly impossible task, to condense George R.R. Martin’s epic novel into a concise television series. However, they have done so with such great detail and action that the series has reached international attention. The series is now in its eighth and final hour, and HBO has finally given what fans have been waiting for.

HBO Finally Confirms Season Eight Release

HBO has finally confirmed that the eighth season of Game of Thrones will premier in April 2019. Season 7 premiered in July 2017, so fans have been patiently waiting a while for the climactic ending.

HBO released the date in a Twitter trailer of the final season. The trailer includes the quote, “Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death. All #ForTheThrone”

What Will Happen In The Eight And Final Season?

Season eight will hopefully answer a lot of open-ended plot points from the previous season. Fans are dying to know if Daenerys and Jon Snow will figure out that they’re blood relatives, as well as if the infamous Cleganebowl between The Hound and The Mountain will finally happen.

Of course, season eight will likely answer the biggest question of them all. What will happen when the Whitewalkers enter Westeros, and who will eventually win the ultimate “Game of Thrones” and become their new leader.

HBO President Is Excited For The Six New Movie-Length Episodes

HBO President Casey Bloys said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have taken their time with the new season. They wanted to ensure that all special effects and big battle scenes were delivered in the high quality that fans have come to expect.

“These things take time… Dan and Dave were not sitting around on a beach waiting to go back to work. They’re perfectionists and this is the soonest it can come back at a level of quality that they are comfortable with,” said Boyd. The final season will feature 90-minute episodes with movie-like quality and plenty of drama as promised.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
