Game of Thrones spin-off launch date confirmed - but big changes announced

HBO Boss Teases [SPOILER] In 'Game Of Thrones' Spinoffs

But none of those series bring in even close to the viewership numbers that HBO enjoys with Game of Thrones, and the return of Big Little Lies or True Detective would have helped soften that blow. Find out everything we know about season 8 here.

While HBO is putting some distance between the end of Game of Thrones and the launch of a potential prequel series, a pilot for an offshoot could be filmed before that, Bloys said. "They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality".

We also know that the final series will contain more CGI than has previously been seen, hinting that there will be a lot more screen times for Daenerys' dragons. This isn't the first time that HBO has crushed our spirits with a ridiculously long wait time considering the schedule of Game of Thrones as well as the fact that we are still waiting for Westworld season 2.

Palace lose Jeffrey Schlupp and Andros Townsend for Burnley clash
They have the division's seventh best record over those 11 games, with 18 points - three more than Burnley over the same period. Reverting back to an organised and disciplined unit in his favoured 4-4-2 formation, Palace have made themselves tough to beat.

That means each of the final six episodes that will make up Season 8 could essentially be a movie. "But if you ask me, 'Would I rather have Game of Thrones back earlier or would I rather have it be good?' I'd would rather have it be good". We have really great writers working on these; it's very exciting.

"Game of Thrones is coming to a very quick end, which I'm feeling emotional about", he said. But the gap between seasons 1 and 2 was 15 months, season 2 aired in late October, creators the Duffer brothers are still writing the next edition, and a start-of-production date has yet to be set ... so you don't need psychic powers to deduce we won't likely be revisiting Hawkins this year. I'm looking forward to finishing, and eight years is the right amount of time. Though the idea of it being canceled seemed ridiculous considering big wigs Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman not only acted in the project but are also producers of the series.
