Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot Eyeing 2019 Production Start

Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot Eyeing 2019 Production Start

As for "Game of Thrones" itself, Bloys declined to provide an air date for the final season, but he said it will be in the first half of 2019. Considering this is the final season of Game of Thrones ever, we wouldn't be surprised if HBO did something special for the announcement early next year. Major actors have wrapped filming, which means the episodes could be ready if the network wants a winter release (imagine Thrones in winter!). Plus, examining the previous premiere dates of the past seasons indicates that HBO likes to go for a slot around April, with season 3 premiering as early as March 31st, 2013 and season 6 on April 24th, 2016.

Let that sink in.

Very little information about the final season of Game of Thrones is in circulation; the series even bowed out of this year's Comic-Con in San Diego in order to preserve the mystery surrounding its conclusion.

Game of Thrones will return to HBO and Sky Atlantic next year. When asked about the content, all he would share is that it's "pretty great". Yup, that's right, the next season will air in the first half of 2019. The upcoming season will consist of just six episodes, which is shorter than usual, at least in terms of episode count. "The update I will give you on the prequels is we are doing a pilot that Jane Goldman wrote", Bloys said.

In other news related to the world of Westeros, Casey Bloys also debunked some recent rumors surrounding the Game of Thrones prequel.

Game of Thrones is easily one of the most successful shows in the history of television. The film has been rumored for years but started coming to real fruition in 2016 when Milch pitched the film to then-HBO boss Michael Lombardo.
