Final 'Game of Thrones' season to air in first half of 2019

It goes without saying that there are major expectations for the final season of Game of Thrones as it has to provide a satisfying conclusion to the epic eight seasons of storytelling.

Many outlets had been reporting that the prequel would start shooting in October, but Bloys said that is not the case.

While he was coy in speaking about details regarding the show's final stretch of episodes, he did reveal some information about what fans should expect. There was a promise of a two-hour movie in place of a fourth season, but it failed to materialize. HBO set up five of these projects - all prequels rather than straight-up spin-offs, according to Thrones author George R.R. Martin - and recently handed a pilot order to one written by Jane Goldman.

"I've known him for a while and it feels like it's something he's not done talking about", he said. With that, Casey Bloys offered the tiniest of updates on when to expect Game of Thrones back on the air. No one is going to duplicate what [GoT showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] did.

HBO had five different scripts to choose from before deciding on Martin and Goldman's prequel. That series will be set thousands of years before the events of Thrones, and Bloys explained how "that was the one we're excited about".

"All of these people have worked very hard to get this together".

The eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" will make its debut in the first half of 2019, HBO programming president Casey Bloys told reporters assembled for the Television Critics Association summer tour in Beverly Hills, California, on Wednesday.

"I don't know where that report came from, we're hoping to go into production in early '19."
