The final season of “Game of Thrones” may not yet have an official return date, but there’s an update from HBO on the eighth and final season of the show.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said the eighth and final season of the show will return in the first half of 2019.
This is probably a hint that “Game of Thrones,” which premiered its first six seasons each in March or April [the seventh season premiered in July] is set to return to its original schedule.
But quite a number of people have spoken about the upcoming season
In a recent interview with Gold Derby, Turner destroyed any hope fans had for a diplomatic and less violent finale
“I can tell you that there’s definitely a coming together of people,” Turner told Gold Derby. “Everyone is coming together to fight the impending doom. There’s a lot of tension between these little groups, battling for what they think is right. It’s Game of Thrones, so it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before.”
After former “Game of Thrones” actor Jason Momoa visited the set, he told Entertainment Weekly that the upcoming season will be the greatest thing that has ever aired on TV.
Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, described the upcoming season as “heartbreaking and the end of an era’.
Earlier this year, HBO executive, Francesca Orsi, who got to sit in on the table read for the final episodes of the show, said there would be quite a number of deaths in season eight.
“None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths,” she said.
