Speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour, HBO President Casey Bloys said the show will air in the first half of 2019 but no official date has been confirmed. We obviously have no clue yet, but we do love anything that hints at Sansa, Jon, and Arya living happily in Winterfell together (even though we know happily-ever-afters aren't really what we should ever expect on Thrones). Jon Snow and Sansa Stark embrace, and Sansa looks at somebody behind Jon's back.
Last night, before the "Sharp Objects" finale, HBO shared one of its classic next year teases - this time promoting many originals coming in 2019. Additionally, the show has been dropping hints implying that Sansa's multi-season captivity with the Lannisters (Cersei, specifically, ) has left an indelible mark on her character as she continues to display more ruthless, arguably imperious attitudes.
They continued: "So, maybe the second part of the vision will happen in season eight and Daenerys will join Drogo and her son by dying because she decides to go north". Although it'll have only six episodes, they are likely to be longer and some might be as long as a feature film.
"But the prequel is starting to shoot in February, at least the pilot". However, over the weekend, a visual effects supervisor for the show told the Huffington Post that the team is just now beginning to work on Season 8 and that the season should be eligible for Emmy consideration in 2020.
The show is nominated for 22 awards at the 2018 Emmy Awards.
