Cancel This Year Game Of Thrones Officially Won't Be Back Til 2019

Game of Thrones' final winter is coming - but not until 2019.

Season 7 of Game of Thrones was the show's highest-rating yet, breaking several records in the process.

It is said that the series will not air in 2018 as David Benioff and Dan Weiss are working on the final episodes.

HBO announced past year that the hit series would end with Season 8.

Weiss and Benioff have been co-creators, executive producers and showrunners for every season of the hit show.

The news comes on the same day it emerged Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin has seen another of his books, Nightflyers, given the greenlight by Syfy in the United States and Netflix internationally.

When season seven ended late a year ago, an all-time high of 12.1 million viewers tuned in.

In March, HBO reps confirmed that they are considering "Game of Thrones" spin-off concepts for the hugely popular franchise.

Reports first began circulating in summer 2017 that GoT might skip 2018 and Sophie Turner, one of its stars, revealed in a recent interview she didn't expect the series to return this year.

The series is HBO's biggest hit ever with some 30 million viewers in the United States alone and an army of devoted fans worldwide.

Season 7, which had only seven episodes, concluded on August 27, 2017.
