Looks Like It Game of Thrones has become a game of and tries to figure out when that show will actually return!
When HBO said the final season of the fantasy series would premiere in the "first half" of 2019, it apparently meant the very last part of the first half of 2019. Casey Bloys, the president of the programming network , told reporters the original time frame at HBO's Summer Television Critics Association press tour last month, and fans hoped that GOT would return in April, like most of the show's previous seasons.
However, in a recent interview with HuffPost Game of Thrones visual effects supervisor Joe Bauer stated otherwise. Commenting on Emmy's potential for the upcoming season, Bauer said, "In two years time, we'll qualify for the Season 8 work we're just getting started on" ̵
To obtain quality for the 2019 Emmys, GOT would have to broadcast most of its latest episodes before May 31, 2019. "I know I'm doing nothing but Thrones until May next year," Bauer says, implying that the very first Game of Thrones had its premiere in May 2019.
The seventh season Thrones premiered in July 2017, and is nominated for an impressive 22 awards at the Emmys 2018, including an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series nod for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
In a recent interview with ET, the actor who was nominated for his first Emmy after nearly a decade playing Jaime Lannister said he only wanted to see his character "to the very end" of the series.
"I talked to Lena [Headey] about that before we both found out I wanted to go," Now that we are so close, you just want to make it to the end, "Coster-Waldau said. If you had gone out in Season Three or Four, it would have been good. But now we are so close. It was definitely a relief to be a part of it.
