HBOWell I hope you like Westworld, because you’re not going to getting any Game of Thrones all of next year. Despite being on a pretty consistent yearly release schedule, Game of Thrones is going to be taking some extra time to air season 8. HBO has been hinting that we might not see the final season until 2019, but now Sansa actress Sophia Turner has confirmed that fact. But it stands to reason that she’s right and Thrones really is taking a long time to air its final season. At this point, the final season of Game of Thrones is probably pretty close to filming an entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, based on its scope and scale.
