Game of Thrones fan theory

Game of Thrones‘ seventh season certainly left fans with a lot to talk about – and it’s a good thing, too, since we probably won’t see the eighth and final season until sometime in 2019. One of the many fan theories that popped up in the wake of the most recent finale involved the potential return of a significant side character, but a new piece of casting news seems to have shot that theory out of the sky like the Night King hurling a spear into Viserion. Read on to find out what to expect from Game of Thrones season 8. Read More »

Game of Thrones Final Season Release Date

The night is long and full of hiatuses. Game of Thrones season 8 will finally wrap up HBO’s epic fantasy series, and although the episode order is shorter, the break between this year’s 7th season and the final season is much, much longer. Because of the length of the six final episodes, and the recently revealed shooting schedules for the cast members, it looks like we won’t get Game of Thrones season 8 until 2019.

But some good news: The cast members of Game of Thrones have already received their scripts, and will begin shooting the final six episodes quite soon. So while we have to wait at least a year and a half for HBO to air the finished product on television, we can at least spend the time diligently stalking the cast and crew’s social media and set pictures.
