The air date Game of Thrones Season 8 is nearly near and fans losing their cool already.
This is of course the point where we remind you that in 2017, HBO did one of the dumbest things imaginable in making us watch a giant block of ice melt in order to get the season 7 premiere date out there. If you assume a seven-episode show will debut the week after True Detective ends, with no Sunday breaks, that takes you through April 21. Reportedly, the final season of Game of Thrones is said to have six episodes in total and each episode has been given a "movie treatment" so that the viewers have a supreme cinematic experience to witness.
While the network and the show's creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, are clearly going big for the show's finale, fans won't have to say goodbye to author George RR Martin's celebrated concept just yet.
Until then, Season 8 of Game of Thrones will premiere in the U.S. on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 10:00pm EST and we couldn't be more excited.
But very soon the suspense will be over.
"It's about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death", co-executive producer Bryan Cogman recently told EW.com about Game of Thrones Season 8.
Specifically, Alt Shift X is looking at the wonders of the world of Game of Thrones, those structures so impressive that no mere mortal can look upon them without jaws agape.
