'Game of Thrones' to return in 2019

'Game of Thrones' to return in 2019

There was no month specified for the 2019 launch, but it will have been well over a year since season seven aired by even the earliest possible airdate.

The executive producers are Benioff, Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield.

HBO confirmed creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss would direct episodes of the six-episode season, along with Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill. They will collaborate on the six episodes of the series' eighth and last season. The others have all had roles creating the mythical world of author George R.R. Martin.

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

This year-long gap will be the longest wait ever for fans desperate to know which character ends up in the coveted Iron Throne.

Series star Sophie Turner previously told Variety production on Season 8 began in October and is set to run into the middle of 2018.

The budget for the final episodes of the hit series is much bigger than the standard for expensive TV episodes, with each episode costing $15 million apiece.

Season 7, which had only seven episodes, concluded on August 27, 2017.
