Game of Thrones Fans Might Have to Wait Even Longer for Season 8
Game of Thronesfans are used to waiting. They had to sit and twiddle their thumbs for longer than usual after the Season 6 finale when Season 7 arrived a few months later than expected. (Now that it's arrived, even the anticipation from week to week for each new episode is agonizing enough.) And they're going to have to wait even more forGoT's eighth and last season.
New details on the hit series' final installment came to light yesterday when HBO president of programming, Casey Bloys, spoke at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Here's the takeaway: Season 8 is already written, and it will consist of six episodes, but the premiere date is still up in the air.
Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are in the middle of "boarding it all out," Bloys explained."It’s a big season, so they’re trying to get a sense of how long it’ll take them to shoot this." Thus, they haven't solidified an air date yet. It could be in 2019 or even 2019, depending on how long production takes.
It was previously revealed that each episode in the last season will be feature-film length, but the exact run time is not confirmed since they haven't started shooting yet. "They’ve talked about the length; I imagine they’ll be longer but I truly don’t know like, ‘oh they’ll be 80 minutes each,’ or whatever, I’m not sure," Bloys said.
But don't be surprised if they run for even longer. When asked if the team instilled a maximum length, Bloys added, "We haven't had that discussion yet because I don't know how long the episodes are gonna be. Two hours per episode seems like it would be excessive, but it's a great show, so who knows?"
If you're looking forward to the spinoffs, you'll have to wait even more for those, too. HBO plans to hold off "at least a year" afterGoTends, whenever that will be.
"So [Season 8] will happen, and my guess is it would be at least a year before you see anything else," Bloys said. "Because what I don’t want is the attention to be drawn from the final season, which I think is gonna be epic and amazing, and somehow have the distraction of a newGame of Thronesairing right after it. I think it’s best to separate them and that’s what we’ll do."
