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

The hit sitcom "Game of Thrones" will now return in 2019 after a year's gap, say officials.

Cable channel HBO, which is the production house for the series, announced on Thursday that GOT will be returning to screens in 2019 for a six-episode finale season.

"Writers for the new season are David Benioff and D B Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill", it added. No one is sure at this time that at what point Game of Thrones will air in 2019, but we can tell you that the final season of the series will consist of total six episodes.

Last summer, EW was first to report that GoT might skip 2018, after the show's showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss explained they planned to spend a year and a half crafting the show's final episodes in an effort to make the final hours as spectacular and satisfying as possible (the eighth season, now in production, is expected to film until this summer).
