The final season of Game of Thrones will premiere April 14, 2019, HBO announced on Sunday night.
Game of Thrones Season 8 marks the climactic conclusion to the fantasy series fans have been following for years now. The production is deeply mired in secrecy, with details on the plot and its release coming few and far between. Back in November, HBO finally narrowed the release date down to April of 2019, but we still did not have a specific date until now.
The final season of Game of Thrones consists of just six episodes. However, each one is reportedly about 90 minutes long, meaning fans will essentially get six movies to wrap the story up. This means that, assuming there are no breaks in the final season, we will see the series finale sometime in May.
