Crews were still filming the show's final season as of late December, Deadline reported.

After months of speculation, HBO has finally confirmed that the last season of Game Of Thrones won't be airing until 2019.

Actress Sophie Turner had revealed that production for the final six episodes had begun in October.

This is huge news because typically the show airs every year during the summer, but not this time.

Alas, we can't even look to past seasons for an idea of when HBO might premiere season 8.

HBO on Thursday confirmed speculation that its hit show Game of Thrones won't return for its final season until 2019.

One of Nutter's six helming credits on the series is the Season 5 finale Mother's Mercy, the episode that featured Queen Cersei's Walk of Atonement. Writers are Benioff & Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
