Game of Thrones Final Season Confirmed For 'First Half' of 2019

Even though the beloved series is set to end once this final batch of Game of tThrones episodes airs, fans have been dying to see how things are going to wrap up and that's left them feeling a bit impatient.

On Wednesday, HBO programming president Casey Bloys told reporters in LA that while HBO is shooting the pilot for one potential "Game of Thrones" spinoff, there are now no plans to move forward on the four other previously announced ideas.

Lately, there's been some confusion circling the seven kingdoms and beyond about the Jane Goldman-scripted GAME OF THRONES prequel, though HBO chief Casey Boys has recently come forward with an update for those looking forward to the mysterious show.

The others "aren't happening", according to Deadline.

Bloys briefly discussed the network's protocol for handling the situation "Any time something comes up on a show with somebody we're in business with", noting the pay cabler did scrap its relationship with Russell Simmons and with Mark Halperin in wake of credible sex harassment claims.

Set thousands of years before the events of Thrones, the project chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. We now know that June 30th is the latest we'll have to wait.

You can read much more about what that plot description could mean right here, but for now, HBO has confirmed that the untitled spin-off will not begin filming this October, as previously rumored.

While attending TCA, Bloys also stated that the final season of GAME OF THRONES will premiere during the first half of 2019.
