  • Game of Thrones returns in 2019, HBO confirms for first time

The news was largely welcomed by the entertainment press, with critics satisfied that the lay-off would mean a higher-quality final season.

Fans were eagerly waiting for the season finale as it is expected to reveal which of the warring families in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros will win the multigenerational struggle for control of the mega Iron Throne.

The statement continues: "David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season". Though it will contain the least episodes of any Game of Thrones season (six), you can expect them to be on the longer side as the story becomes more movie-like and epic in scope. They will collaborate on the six-episode, eighth and last season, to air in 2019. Inn addition to this, this delay can give ample time for George R.R. Martin, the author, more time to waork on other projects such as his next book, "The Winds of Winter" which he said would be released this year.

Listen up Game of Thrones fans because this is important news.
