Game of Thrones fans have been waiting not so patiently ever since the highly anticipated eighth season was announced. Especially now that filming has ended, we've all been wondering just when we can expect the show's next episodes. HBO originally gave us an incredibly vague response, saying Season 8 would come "sometime in 2019." Thanks for nothing, HBO.
However, while we still don't have a firm date, HBO programming president Casey Bloys revealed the show will be returning in the first half of the year. So most likely, winter will be coming next spring.
Bloys would not talk much about what comes next for our favorite Westerosi characters, other than that "it's pretty great." He did, however, discuss the Game of Thrones prequel series. We already know a pilot has been ordered for one series, and that filming will begin in Belfast this October.
