It looks like waiting for the latest season from the popular “Game of Thrones” series will not be completed soon, if Joe Bauer, the man behind the visual effects of the series, can be trusted.
HBO has already scheduled six episodes of the series to be broadcast during 2019, but after crashing hopes that the first one will arrive at the beginning of the year, now speculations say the eighth season could be postponed until the summer of 2019.
In an interview with Joe Bauer with Huffington Post, he talked about the prize season and EMI awards, and said that the eighth season of “Game of Thrones” should be in the fight for rewards until 2020.
The one who knows how the EMI works will know what Bauer wants to say. Namely, in order to enter the competition for the awards, the series should have broadcast most of their episodes no later than May 31 of the same year. Otherwise, the series will have to be declared for the awards next year. This means that the six episodes of “Game of Thrones” announced for 2019 will not appear until the middle of the year, suggesting what Bauer said later in the interview.
“We will work for the eighth season at the earliest until May 2019, which means that we are at least 9 months away from the season’s premiere,” Bauer said, meaning that we can expect the final season of Game of Thrones sometime in early June.
