Production of the last season started in October, and Turner said that they have another six-seven months of filming left.
For fans who were still hoping for that slim possibility that "Game of Thrones" would be returning to HBO in 2018, the truth is unfortunately not what they're going to want to hear, as one of the show's biggest stars has officially confirmed the show would air its final season in 2019. Sophie Turner told Variety in a new interview that the eighth and final season will premiere in 2019, meaning that we have over a year to go before the next episodes of the show. And without Littlefinger (Petyr Baelish, played by actor Aidan Gillen), it's a test for her of whether she can get through it. "This season is more a passionate fight for her than a political, manipulative kind of fight". "So, I'm really excited about the future", said Sophie Turner. "Then I have a couple indie movies coming out". Rumors are that the final season includes quite a few blockbuster action set pieces and battles, so Benioff and Weiss need ample opportunity to make it as epic as possible. It is also reported that the new season of "Game of thrones" will be the most expensive in television history.

Per People , a spokesperson at Kensington Palace on Tuesday said that Harry was "looking forward to introducing Ms. Markle to a community that has become very special to him".
Turner also gave a sneak-peek into the challenges her character faces in the eight and final season. Every single cast member was pretty much there. We all feel that we are coming to an end. Even outside the show, which is filled with the suffering and brutal deaths of your favorite characters, Game of Thrones showrunners like to torture fans by slowly reducing the number of episodes each year, then gradually extending the wait between seasons. "We're all trying not to take it for granted anymore".
"Game of Thrones comes out in 2019", the actress said when discussing release of her upcoming work, including the film X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
