Game Of Thrones Season 8: HBO Narrows Down Its Premiere Date

As for Game of Thrones season 8, Bloys refused to get specific about what fans could expect from the final season or even when it will air, saying only that it will be sometime during "the first half of next year".

The news of the movie's greenlight comes 12 years after "Deadwood" went off the air back in 2006, after having run for a total of 3 seasons (36 episodes) on HBO.

Now, thanks to HBO's programming president Casey Bloys, we know it will arrive during the "first half" of next year. Bloys also revealed that HBO is only going forward with one of the five Game of Thrones prequel series that were in the works.

The Prince who was Promised, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) will return for the final season. "I'm not gonna tell you what to expect, but it's pretty great".

Game of Thrones is easily one of the most successful shows in the history of television.

Game of Thrones episodic director Dan Minahan is already on board to direct, and if someone can manage to round up the cast, this should all go off without a further hitch.

The prequel takes place thousands of years before Game of Thrones and has been created by GoT author George RR Martin and screenwriter Jane Goldman (Kingsman, X-Men). Bloys said the backlash wasn't as big as some publications made it seem.

Viewers will have to wait until 2019 to see the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones.

HBO is now on the hunt to find a director for one prequel, which is said to debut in 2019. The film has been rumored for years but started coming to real fruition in 2016 when Milch pitched the film to then-HBO boss Michael Lombardo.
