"Game of Thrones" fans settle in for a long long... long Winter.
HBO announced Thursday the hit series would not see the light of day until a still undisclosed date in 2019 for its six-episode, eighth and final season.
David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season. Writers for the new season are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
The announcement was met with an expected amount of despair across social media.
