'GOT' Season 8 will film until summer 2018: Liam Cunningham

Because of the length of the six final episodes, and the recently revealed shooting schedules for the cast members, it looks like we won't get Game of Thrones season 8 until 2019.

During a panel for Amazon's upcoming anthology series Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, which Cunningham stars in one episode of, the Onion Knight was (of course) asked about the final season of Game of Thrones. He even compared it to the previous seasons, where they only took six months to do 10 episodes. He then said that it is a clear indication that longer episodes are about to be made. Yesterday something quite monumental happened.

"Let me tell you what I know".

With such a huge production and a massive following, hopefully HBO is able to give us a proper farewell for Game of Thrones.

For the first six years of production, the show filmed from around the beginning of summer through to December.

Odell Beckham Jr., 3 Other Receivers Injured In Giants-Chargers Game
The Giants saw their top receivers-Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Odell Beckham all left the game with foot injuries. Sitting at 0-5 and losing their best player, the situation might be able to get worse for the Giants, but not by much.

The screen actor said that the filming will be done in the summer, which might be around May or June 2018, while Bloys disclosed that the production could run until August. The past seasons have premiered in the spring or summer of the next year.

Nothing is official until HBO makes it official, but at this point, it's safe to assume that we won't see a new episode of Game of Thrones next year.

But for those fans who are itching for a peek at Game of Thrones, the waiting game might be easier this time around. But the most important part of Cunningham's quote was in regards to how long the crew plans to film for the eighth season.

According to Winter is Coming, the television adaptation of George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel series' seventh season featured two longer episodes than usual.
