Every day that goes by is another day closer to Season 8 of Game of Thrones. That is how I am coping with the wait; taking it day by day so I do not go crazy. Obviously, from this, you can tell that I love Game of Thrones. So far, it has been an exceptional television show to watch. It has pushed the boundaries of what television can do from a story and production perspective.
Moreover, the cultural significance of Game of Thrones is undeniable. It has captured the hearts of millions and it has become an event whenever a new season is airing. Clearly, anticipation for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is through the roof. For me, if Season 8 delivers, then the show will surpass The Wire as being the greatest TV show ever made.
When Will Season 8 Arrive?
Once Season 7 ended, the long wait for Season 8 began. Since the production for the final season of Game of Thrones will be a huge endeavour, it was expected that we would have to wait a while for Season 8 to premiere. Thanks to Sophie Turner, we have some new information on this matter. In an interview with Variety, Sophie Turner said the following about Season 8 as well as some of her other upcoming projects:
“Yeah, I’m really excited. Game of Thrones comes out in 2019. Dark Phoenix is in November. Then I have a couple indie movies coming out. I’m a producer on my next movie [Girl Who Fell From the Sky]. So I’m really excited about the future.”
2019 has always looked like the year when Season 8 of Game of Thrones would premiere. It gives HBO enough time to make this final season as great as it can possibly be. It would be a disservice to the show if it was rushed for a 2018 release. Hence, taking the time to get the story and production right is the best-case scenario for everyone. Indeed, given how busy Sophie Turner’s schedule and the other cast members schedules will be, it also makes sense for them that 2019 is the year when Season 8 is released. Now, the speculation begins about when in 2019 will the final season of Game of Thrones premiere.
