Bad news for 'Game of Thrones' fans

HBO has announced that the final season of Game of Thrones will commence in early 2019 Camera IconHBO has announced that the final season of Game of Thrones will commence in early 2019

Last week, Deadwood star Robin Weigert (who majestically played the kickass Calamity Jane for three seasons of the HBO show) casually mentioned to the LA Times that a movie version of the gloriously profane series stood a 90% chance of happening. The series, created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, frustrated some fans at the end of its second season due to overlapping narratives that many viewers found impossible to make sense of and/or follow.

Bloys specifically said Season 8 would premiere in the "first half" of 2019, which gives us quite a range for the six-episode season.

Bloys doesn't seem too anxious about "Westworld", most likely because the series earned 21 Emmy nominations this year, including best drama series.

We've finally got an update on Game of Thrones' final season! So far, the upcoming prequel series is being described as "the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour". Bloys said the backlash wasn't as big as some publications made it seem. "Our thought going into it, the reason we did multiple scripts was, as you all know, in the development process, out of five we feel like we'll have one that we are very, very excited about".

None of the current Game of Thrones actors will appear on this series.

As for "Game of Thrones" itself, Bloys declined to provide an air date for the final season, but he said it will be in the first half of 2019.

Bloys confirmed the prequel won't start shooting until early 2019.
