The revelation means fans will have to wait longer than ever for the fantasy drama, which has grown its ratings year after year into one of the most popular shows in the world and HBO's biggest hit of all time.

NEW YORK -"Game of Thrones" fans will be disappointed to hear that the show won't be coming back in 2018.

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

Executive producers include Benioff and Weiss, as well as Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doegler, and Bernadette Caulfield, while Game of Thrones author George RR Martin will be co-executive producer, along with Cogman, Guymon Casady, and Vince Gerardis.

Government urged to introduce 25p "latte levy" on coffee cups from MPs
The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) said it welcomed Friday's recommendations from the Environmental Audit Committee. However, MPs criticised coffee chains for confusing customers by perpetuating the notion coffee cups are recyclable.

But the question on fans' minds is when, exactly, will GoT return? They will collaborate on the six-episode, eighth and last season.

The long gap until the final season would give Martin the chance to finish one or two new Game of Thrones books that he has said he was working on. While those 12.1 million people who watched the episode as it aired, making it the most-watched episode in the history of GOT series.

This is huge news because typically the show airs every year during the summer, but not this time.

The show, which has more Emmy Awards than any other narrative series and pulls in more than 20 million United States viewers per episode, moved beyond George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels in season six. Miguel Sapochnik ("Hardhome", "Battle of the Bastards" and "The Winds of Winter"), David Nutter ("Rains of Castamere"), Bryan Cogman ("Kissed by Fire") and Dave Hill will also direct.
