👌HBO has confirmed that Game of Thrones will return for its final season on April 14 2019 and released an ominous first trailer showing the Stark family confronting their future.
In a crushing blow for Thrones fans, however, HBO head of programming Casey Bloys has hinted there could be another agonising wait between the end of Game of Thrones and the beginning of the first spin-off show. "You’re not going to see anything air anytime close to the season 8 finale," he said.
The eighth season will be the shortest yet, with only six episodes, making it shorter than the penultimate season (seven episodes), and much shorter than the first six seasons of the show. While the eight season will only have six episodes, they will be much longer than the one-hour length of previous seasons. It appears episodes will be up to 80 minutes, and potentially there could be feature-length instalments.
HBO chose to tease that the announcement was coming in advance, then drop it on air prior to the third-season premiere of its crime drama "True Detective." The stunt reflects how the pay channel -- like CNN, a unit of Warner Media -- intends to leverage its most-watched show and "Thrones'" avid fan base to help launch other programs leading up to and during its finishing run.
The seventh-season finale set a ratings record in 2017, attracting 16.5 million viewers on HBO and via same-day streaming, according to Nielsen data. That represented a surge of more than 35% compared to the corresponding episode the previous season.
💫 The premiere puts the series finale date at May 19.
Out of the illusions of the old life and re-birthed into the one which can be. It's very true we do have to 'die' the old self and old life to midwife our rebirth. Wow - it is so worth it when we come out the other side!
This is how life works. When we are not showing up we are hiding and holding back who we are - Life and our Soul doesn't want that. Soooo the parts of ourselves "in hiding" get smashed by situations and people, to break down our defenses to let the REAL us out.
The interesting thing is we have been so terrified of being "real" and yet when we break through those fears of being criticised, abandoned and rejected and truly embrace ourselves, as we are, we discover this - the real us was always safe because true authentic, radiance is the most powerful force on the Planet. It is literally the power of the Universe flowing through Us as Us.
