game of thrones sets open

Winterfell is opening its doors to the masses. Finally, we unwashed peasants can traverse the great halls of Winterfell and the dank hallways of Castle Black with the launch of Game of Thrones Legacy, a tourist experience that opens the Northern Ireland sets of Game of Thrones to tourists. The Legacy experience will launch in 2019, which gives you ample time before the final season of Game of Thrones premieres sometime in spring 2019.

But, if you can’t afford a ticket to Ireland right at this moment, there’s another Game of Thrones-related purchase you can make while biding your time for the eighth and final season: more Funko Pops, including one of A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. Maybe if you yell at his toy, he’ll write faster.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere

Back towards the beginning of the year, we learned the Game of Thrones season 8 premiere wouldn’t arrive until sometime in 2019. This is the final season of the HBO epic fantasy series, and even though it will be shorter than the previous season, it will have expensive, movie-length episodes. Because of that, the final season might not debut until later than fans were expecting.

Game of Thrones fans have been counting on HBO bringing the series back to a traditional spring debut after the previous seventh season arrived last summer. However, it sounds like the Game of Thrones season 8 premiere will likely not debut until the summer of next year. Thankfully, a small snippet of footage has arrived to help ease the anticipation.

Game of Thrones spin-off shows

Update: We’ve now learned that Deadline’s report is incorrect. When HBO president Casey Bloys was asked if he scrapped the other Game of Thrones spin-off projects entirely or if he might go back to them at some point, Bloys said “a combination,” implying that they were not all dead for good. Our original article can be read below.

The night is dark and full of cancellations.

At a Television Critics Association panel this morning, HBO announced that the premium cable channel will not move forward with four out of the five Game of Thrones spin-off shows that it previously had in development.

con of thrones 2018

Winter is here for Game of Thrones fans, who are in the midst of a great content drought; the show isn’t back until next year, and George R.R. Martin may never finish his A Song of Ice and Fire book series. But for three short days in May, those things didn’t matter, as a contingency of fans gathered in Dallas for the second annual Con of Thrones, a convention dedicated to celebrating Martin’s rich, fantastical world.

And judging from the passion radiating off of the walls of the Hyatt Regency, this is a group that could survive the longest of winters – so long as they’re in each other’s company.
