Game of Thrones season 8 might arrive later than expected

Sophie Turner Game of Thrones

"Game of Thrones comes out in 2019", Turner told Variety, though she may not have realized she was putting a definite year on a show HBO has been vague about.

Filming for Game of Thrones season eight has already begun, although it kicked off later than for previous seasons, and some of the final episodes will reportedly be feature film-length.

HBO is also now developing multiple Game of Thrones spin-off shows. Even outside the show, which is filled with the suffering and brutal deaths of your favorite characters, Game of Thrones showrunners like to torture fans by slowly reducing the number of episodes each year, then gradually extending the wait between seasons. "This season, there's a new threat", she said.

It's bad news for 'Game Of Thrones' fans, as the rumours surrounding the final season of the fantasy drama are true - at least according to its star Sophie Turner, who has claimed that the eighth and ultimate season will not premiere until 2019.

Nevertheless, we do know that HBO has elected to pull out the big guns for the show's swan songs, with series veterans such as David Nutter, Miguel Sapochnik, and the aforementioned creator/showrunner duo of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss taking turns on directorial duties of the final six episodes, with the latter two helming the series finale. By the time we actually get to the season premiere, probably more like 18. All of the Americans wanted to come over. "Every single cast member was pretty much there", Turner continued. That part of our life is coming to a close, and we're not looking forward to that end. We're all staying in town a little longer, going out for more meals, trying to get together more.

She also talked about her upcoming projects, including "X-Men: Dark Phoenix", in which she will reprise her role of Jean Grey.

So, if we're reading this right: the family will be split up again, they won't be in control of the North, white walkers EVERYWHERE, and everything is chaos.
