HBO announces release date for ‘Game of Thrones’ finale
LOS ANGELES - Famous TV series  Game of Thrones fans will have to wait until 2019 for the planned final season of the award-winning medieval fantasy series, a gap of more than a year since the end of season seven.

Production giant HBO said on Thursday that  Game of Thrones would return in 2019 for a six-episode final season.

HBO did not specify the month for the release. The series is HBO’s biggest hit ever with some 30 million viewers in the United States alone and devoted fans in droves worldwide.

The final season of the Emmy Award-winning show is expected to reveal which of the warring families in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros will win the multigenerational struggle for control of the Iron Throne.

Production of the final season started in October and filming is expected to last until mid-2018. HBO’s head of programming, Casey Bloys has said multiple endings will be filmed to avoid leaks or hacks of how the saga ends.

The seventh season ended in August 2017 with an average of over 30 million US viewers per episode across multiple platforms. Some of its seven episodes were more than an hour long.

The long gap until the final season would give author George R R Martin the chance to finish one or two new  Game of Thrones books that he earlier said he was working on.
