Game of Thrones Won't Return Until 2019, Sophie Turner Says

It's bad news for 'Game Of Thrones' fans, as the rumours surrounding the final season of the fantasy drama are true - at least according to its star Sophie Turner, who has claimed that the eighth and ultimate season will not premiere until 2019.

Game of Thrones' final season has yet to be given a release date, but the penultimate season is now available in its entirety on HBO Go and HBO Now.

Game of Thrones Season 1-7 are now available for streaming via HBO Go.

This aligns with our previous reporting on the season 8 release date.

In a new interview with Variety, Sophie Turner (Sansa) said it will come out in 2019. "And without Littlefinger, it's a test for her of whether she can get through it", she told Variety. It's a big challenge for her, without this master manipulator having her back. "This season is more a passionate fight for her than a political, manipulative kind of fight", Turner said.

If you're upset about the delay, don't be: showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been open about taking their sweet time on the show's final season in order to make it the most epic yet. Due to the vast levels of CGI utilized, post production is extensive on a show like Game of Thrones. "No, no, we've got six or seven months left", said Turner.

The lucky victor will also get return flights for two people, transfers, hotel dinner for one evening and a visit to the Game of Thrones tapestry plus a tour of numerous spectacular shooting locations which feature in Game of Thrones.

Turner also stars as Jean Grey in the latest "X-Men" films and will be the central character in the next installment, "Dark Phoenix", which arrives November 2018.

So, if we're reading this right: the family will be split up again, they won't be in control of the North, white walkers EVERYWHERE, and everything is chaos.
