Our fear is becoming reality.

The show finale for Game of Thrones will definitely not be airing until 2019.

This was revealed by Sophie Turner who plays Sansa Stark on the show.

Turner said that the cast are still signed up for another six or seven months of shooting.

It is a relatively long filming period, compared to previous seasons, maybe to get the perfect ending for a great series that had about 1 billion illegal downloads.

The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is said to boast of a per-episode budget of around $15 million for each installment.

This is due to the plan of producing several endings to prevent any leaks, in a show that has been haunted by scenes and scripts leaks.

2019 is set to be the greatest year for TV with the arrival of Game Of thrones coming to a climax, with 2018 acting as the waiting room for anxious fans.
