HBO did not specify which month when making the announcement, but confirmed the popular show would return in 2019 for a six-episode final season. No one is sure at this time that at what point Game of Thrones will air in 2019, but we can tell you that the final season of the series will consist of total six episodes.
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.
Weiss and Benioff have been co-creators, executive producers and showrunners for every season of the hit show.
Production of the final season started in October and filming is expected to last until mid-2018.
