It’s the news Game of Thrones fans want to hear, but don’t want to hear: The finale is coming. The show has confirmed that Season 8 will begin this spring. Keep reading for more details.
The award-winning show is scheduled to sign off after eight seasons.
Fans have waited long and hard for the news about when the final season will air. Season seven wrapped up way back in August 2017.
A lot has happened off-screen for the stars of the show since then. As OK! readers know, Sophie Turner got engaged to beau Joe Jonas, GOT co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie got married in Scotland, and Hafthor Björnsson, who plays Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane, tied the knot in Iceland.
While not much has been revealed about what’s to come in the battle for the Iron Throne, Peter Dinklage has shared some secrets about his character. When discussing Tyrion Lannister's end, he told Vulture, “I think he was given a very good conclusion. No matter what that is – death can be a great way out”. He also called his last day on set “beautifully bittersweet”.
The show posted a teaser clip to Instagram that shared the news. The beginning of the end of Game of Thrones is April 2019.
