Our watch hasn’t ended yet as the makers released an official announcement that the finale won’t be aired this year but 2019. What’s more, putting all speculations to rest, they also revealed that the last season won’t have eight episodes. Instead, it’ll have six long ones.

“‘Game of Thrones’ will return for its six-episode, eighth and final season in 2019,” HBO announced via Twitter. “David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season. Writers for the new season are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.”

While we wait for 2019, let’s bring out some wine, shall we?
