An announcement from USA premium cable channel HBO has confirmed long suspected rumours that the show would not return in 2018.

It's official, the final and eighth season of epic fantasy show "Game of Thrones" will arrive in 2019.

NEW YORK -"Game of Thrones" fans will be disappointed to hear that the show won't be coming back in 2018.

"When you think about it, up until last season we would have six months to do 10 episodes, so we are doing way more than that for six episodes".

The delay is suspected to give Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin a window to release his long-awaited novel The Winds of Winter from his Fire and Blood series.

Starring Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and numerous other big names, Game of Thrones tells the story of noble families vying for control of the Iron Throne, all the while keeping one eye on the "White Walkers" leading hordes of the undead in an invasion from the North.

David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will direct. David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill are writing all the episodes. But given that the network opted to air GoT in the spring every year until a longer-than-usual production schedule pushed season 7 to last summer, a return to a spring launch seems logical.

Filming for the final season started in October previous year, and is expected to continue until mid-2018. Co-executive producers are Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin. After all, a final season airing January 1, 2019 is a rather different for fans than one airing December 31, 2019.
