lol even the show now

quote:

Got GoT? Not for at least a year, says Sophie Turner.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones started filming back in October, and while it was at one point projected to air in 2018, Turner tells Variety that you shouldn’t set your DVR until the following year. “Game of Thrones comes back in 2019,” she says.

Pretty sure that was always the plan - I've heard 2019 for awhile.

Well, my bad then. I was under the impression it was 2018

Yes 2018 is for Winds of Winter and then Dream of Spring in 2019 to tie in with the finale.

No need to apologise when I am right, like usual.





2019 was always the more likely outcome for the season finale of GoT but 2018 wasn't impossible afaik.

Half the posters in this forum have been made up. This website is a goddamn ghost town.

Months ago, they said "either late 2018 or early 2019, we'll see."

Ever present.


There was no way GoT was airing in 2018. HBO aren't going to put their flagship show up against Sunday Night Football. So unless they had it ready to go for the exact same time they aired it this year, even with all the extra work to be done, it was always going to be 2019.

never occurred to me there would be a year gap in between season 7 and 8. Isn't that sort of weird?

The Sopranos set the precedent by taking a year off to work on its final season too, and that was insanely simple compared to GOT. By all accounts they're filming the equivalent of six big budget feature films worth of footage because each episode of Season 8 is going to be if not at least then nearly 2 hours long a piece.

Personally speaking, I prefer it this way, but makes you wonder why they're doing 6 episodes at double length or so instead of 9 to 12 singles, depending on how much longer each episode works out.

Actors are paid per episode so this frees up a lot of budget.

You would think the actors would object to this, it is a clear contract dodge.

They could just make one 14 hours episode and broadcast it in 7 parts

It's not surprising at all. Both the last seasons took ~18 months.

Too bad writing isn't that easy or fast.

To be fair the plot of the last two seasons was garbage nonsense, if GRRM could crank out something like that in 18 months I'd still prefer it if he didn't.

Production values are great tho

The sooner the show ends the sooner the former child actors will never work again. Look forward to meeting a frumpy Sophie Turner at a local comic book store in 2030 signing autographs for $15 a pop.

"BOOM!"

Sophie Turner will play Jean Grey until she’s in her forties.

So it might happen in 2040-ish

Yeah, Sophie Turner and Maise Williams are going to have strong careers after GOT is done, at the very least.

He might actually be the one writing it.

Kit’s done at least two non-GOT projects for HBO already and is (going to be, if he isn’t already) married to Rose Leslie. I think he’s fairly safe too.

If you think that, along the way, you're not going to fail... you're blind.

There's no one I've ever met, no matter how successful they are, who hasn't said they had their failures along the way.

There's probably a market for dancing caterpillars, so she might have a career in children's television.

At something like 22 and 23 at the time of season 1 filming, Kit and Emilia weren't really child actors, though.

People seem to like her enough as Jean Grey in the X-Men movies and I think she's in some other stuff. She's not going to be hurting for work any time soon.

Bran's actor, on the other hand...?

I think he’s talked about how he’s gonna pull a Jack Gleeson and quit acting to go to college and be a scientist or something

In retrospect it’s a shame Gleeson didn’t get at least an Emmy nom, especially if Clarke could get one and they could win Best Drama for the Bronn and Jaime go to Dorne ep, my god. Ageism at work

Kit is not the strongest actor but I think he fits Jon pretty well, and he’s light years ahead of Emilia

Kit at least works pretty well if you put him opposite a strong actor to work off of. Emilia is just awful always.
