Game of Thrones officially delayed until 2019

Game of Thrones officially delayed until 2019

Directors David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik are confirmed to return for season eight, but none of the casting has been revealed.

HBO announced Thursday that the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will not air until 2019.

Production of the final season started in October and filming is expected to last until mid-2018. The Emmy winning TV series is set to release a six-episode final season for all it's fans.This will so far be the shortest season ever, compared to the 10 episodes each, of the first six seasons.

Season 7 of Game of Thrones was the show's highest-rating yet, breaking several records in the process. As the biggest hit in HBO's history, one the subscription service hoped to continue for additional seasons, keeping the show around awhile long isn't a bad thing.

The long gap until the final season would give author George R.R. Martin the chance to finish one or two new "Game of Thrones" books that he said in July he was working on.

Weiss and Benioff have been co-creators, executive producers and showrunners for every season of the hit show. While most of the previous seasons premiered during the spring, the sixth season came out during the summer after they needed more time to film winter-related scenes.

In March, HBO reps confirmed that they are considering "Game of Thrones" spin-off concepts for the hugely popular franchise. While some episodes may be longer than usual, once again we're hearing not to expect feature-length episodes throughout the season.

The television series has already advanced beyond the events of George RR Martin's five published novels in his A Song of Ice and Fire series.

The executive producers of the series are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield.
