GoT fans have been left in the dark as to when the final six episodes of Game of Thrones will air — now we have a better idea of its long-awaited return. According to Entertainment Weekly, Season 8 will begin airing in the first half of 2019. Given that previous GoT seasons have traditionally aired in March or April, it’s a good indication of when to expect it back on our screens.

Here’s a FAN TEASER to get you hyped for GoT Season 8:

What about the Game of Thrones prequel?

If you thought the GoT saga was coming to a close, get ready to dive back in time because a prequel is already in the works. Set 10,000 years before the current events in Game of Thrones, the prequel may shed light on the origin stories of our favorite dueling families.

Here’s the official HBO synopsis of the untitled prequel series:
“The series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.”

HBO has confirmed that no prequel will air until a year after the GoT series finale. That means the soonest we can expect the prequel series will be in 2020. Excited yet?!
