As was expected, Game of Thrones wont return to the airwaves for its eighth and final season until 2019. HBO has yet to confirm a date for their tentpole series' return, so Turner's statement will surely please fans who have been desperate for information about their favorite show. When the star was asked about her excitement level for the premiere as well as her upcoming role as Jean Grey in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix", she nearly offhandedly noted that "Thrones" won't be out until 2019. I don't know about you but it the latter truly is the case then I will physically march to the wall myself (or to some Hollywood office and give David Benioff and D.B Weiss a piece of my mind). I'm a producer on my next movie [Girl Who Fell From the Sky]. "So I'm really excited about the future", Turner said. They were in control of the North again.
"When we all had the read-through for the final season, it was very, very emotional", she said.
There are just six episodes left in the final series, although some of which are likely to be feature-length. "And without Littlefinger, it's a test for her of whether she can get through it", she told Variety.
Should Season 8 indeed be held for 2019, it will mark the longest gap between seasons since the 13 month stretch between Season 6 (finale aired June 26, 2016) and Season 7 (premiered July 16,2017).
When Variety quizzed her about the production schedule, she added: "We started in October, so we're maybe like a tenth of the way through. This season is more a passionate fight for her than a political, manipulative kind of fight".
"When you see these battles in season seven, and what I imagine season eight will be, it's a big, big show", he said. "We'll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing".
