Game of Thrones star confirms season 8 release date
Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has confirmed the eighth season will return to screens in 2019.
With production dates continually shifting, there has been some confusion among fans whether the HBO series will be airing next year or in 2019.
Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the show, has now confirmed that we will have to wait until 2019 to watch the new episodes. *cries*
When asked if she was excited about the next season premiering in 2018 by Variety, Turner corrected: “Game of Thrones comes out in 2019.”
She continued: “We started in October, so we’re maybe like a tenth of the way through.
“We’ve got six or seven months left.”
Speaking on how the cast feel about Game of Thrones coming to an end, the actor said: “When we all had the read-through for the final season, it was very, very emotional.
“For the first time in Thrones history, we had everyone there. All of the Americans wanted to come over. Every single cast member was pretty much there.
“We’re all kind of feeling the end of it coming. We’re all staying in town a little longer, going out for more meals, trying to get together more. We’re all trying not to take it for granted any more.”
Game of Thrones season 8 returns in 2019.
