Sorry, Game of Thrones fans, but that rumor that the eighth and final season won ’ t drop until 2019 is starting to look very likely to be true. Why? Because actor Liam Cunningham, a.k.a. Ser Davos, told TV Guide that despite having the fewest episodes ever for a Thrones season

The good news: Game of Thrones' Season 8 has a release date. The bad news: It's not until 2019, HBO announced this week.

Season 7 of the series aired this past July and August, while the previous seasons of the show tended to premiere in March and April. It is unknown at this time at what point in 2019 Game of Thrones will air, but the final season of the mega-hit fantasy series will consist of just six episodes. Season 7 was seven episodes, several of which were over an hour long.

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

'Game of Thrones' Star Rory McCann Hasn't Watched the Entire Show: 'I'm Way Lost'

  'Game of Thrones' Star Rory McCann Hasn't Watched the Entire Show: 'I'm Way Lost' It turns out it is possible to watch only part of "Game of Thrones" without getting hooked -- and one of the show's stars, of all people, is proof. Rory McCann has starred in the acclaimed HBO series as Sandor Clegane (aka the Hound) since Season 1, with the exception of Season 5, but he still hasn't felt compelled to watch the show all the way through yet. He recently revealed to SFX magazine (via its sister publication GamesRadar+) that he's "way lost" -- to the point that he has met fellow "Game of Thrones" stars without realizing they appeared in the same show.

The interviewer then asked, more explicitly, “So as of now, the final season could air in 2018 and / or in 2019 depending on their needs?” Anyway, you may be waiting until 2019 for the end of Game of Thrones . I’m sorry.

Between Game of Thrones ’ absence from HBO’s “Coming Soon in 2018” video (below) and Sophie Turner straight-up saying that season 8 won ’ t air until SARAH: I know that I’m one among a small number here, but I don’t mind waiting until 2019 for new episodes. Season 7 took it out of me, man.

Season 7 of Game of Thrones was the show's highest-rated yet, breaking several records in the process. The season finale was watched by 16.5 million viewers, including people who watched the episode as it aired and night-of streams. Of those, 12.1 million watched the episode as it aired, making it the most-watched episode in series history.

Directors for the new season are: series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, David Nutter, and Miguel Sapochnik. Benioff and Weiss will also write the new season along with Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill. Benioff and Weiss executive produce along with Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield. Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin co-executive produce.

As Variety TV critic Mo Ryan notes on Twitter, "By the time it ends, #GameofThrones will have aired 73 episodes. 2.7% directed by women (2 eps, both had same director). 4 episodes in which a woman had full or partial writing credit (5.5%). 2 women writers ever. Last time a woman credited as a #GoT writer was 2013."
