We have known for a while that the final season of Game of Thrones won’t be coming this year. While for a long time, there was no news on the possible air date, recently we started getting information from people close to the production of the series. Recently, Maisie Williams revealed that the final season might premiere on April of next year.
The actress recently talked to Metro where she talked about the show and schedules. She said, “We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April . That’s a four-month turnaround for these huge episodes. There’s a lot that goes into the final edit. You would not want to rush this season at all. We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities.”
While we have to wait to find out if the tentative timeline is accurate, it isn’t the first time someone close to the production of the series spilled bean on the premier date. For instance, earlier last month, Sophie Turner claimed that the final season will arrive in next year before HBO finally confirmed that it is indeed the case.
However, as the production is still in the early stage, we will have to wait to find out more about the last season. But as we move forward, more news are likely to surface in the coming months.
