Luckily, those rumours have hopefully been put to rest, because Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) has revealed to Variety that the release date is more likely to be the previously stated "2019". Turner, now on set shooting the final season of the beloved fantasy show, spoke about where her character, Sansa Stark, lies in the next installment. After all, the team still has to add in the CGI segments of the series especially when we're all expecting a lot of dragon fights and white walker clashes next season.

With filming expected to run until summer 2018, fans can expect Game of Thrones to return sometime around spring 2019.

Conleth Hill, Peter Dinklage, Nathalie Emmanuel, Emilia Clarke, Liam Cunningham, Kit Harington on season 7 of Game of Thrones, 2017.

Rumours concerning the final six episodes of HBO's expansive fantasy drama, which made its debut way back in 2011, began when the seventh season concluded back in August. "[Laughs.] No, no, we've got six or seven months left", said Turner.


Is there a consciousness on set of the fact that this is the last season? "And without Littlefinger, it's a test for her of whether she can get through it", she told Variety. "We're all kind of feeling the end of it coming", she said. There will be no Game of Thrones season next year. And because it was my first job, the actors on "Game of Thrones" are the people I learned to act from. It also works on the level that it's still possible, however infinitesimally small that you think it is, that George R.R. Martin might actually release The Winds of Winter next year.

She also talked about her upcoming projects, including "X-Men: Dark Phoenix", in which she will reprise her role of Jean Grey. We won't fault the creatives for taking their time to get it right and stick the landing.

Season Eight is coming, and so is the end of our times in the Thrones universe.
