Get ready to scream: Game of Thrones Season 8 doesn’t arrive until…2019.
HBO confirmed today that the six-episode, series finale of major fantasy series will not arrive for another year. That means the fate of Jon Snow and Daenerys will not be revealed for at least another 361 days — like, what the eff!
