Season seven of Game of Thrones has come to an end and fans are clamoring to know what's next. Not only is the hotly awaited season eight in development, but George R.R. Martin‘s next book in the series is way overdue. Then there's all the talk about those prequels that HBO is producing. There's plenty in store for Game of Thrones fans, you just might need a bit of patience.

season 8: The Basic Details

Most, if not all, Game of Thrones fans are preoccupied with when the heck we're getting season eight. The final season of the HBO drama is expected to premiere sometime in early 2019 – yeah, a year and a half from now. The struggle is real. Plus the final season will only consist of six episodes. Luckily they'll all be longer than usual — up to feature-length movie size.

We also know for sure that the final six episodes have already been written and the endgame is clearly in sight. According to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jamie Lannister in the series, the full cast returns to film starting this October. Other than that what happens next is, as always, anyone's guess (and trust us, fans have theories!).
