The final season will only have 6 episodes and is set to premiere in first half of 2019. However, the show needs to be aired before May 31, 2019, to be eligible for 2019 Emmys. The VFX is going to take a lot of time which could delay the show further. There will be 2 epic battles in the final season. Apart from the final season, HBO is preparing for a prequel of the series on the same scale. The prequel, ‘The long night’, will be set in the age of heroes, which is approximately 8,000-10,000 years before the timeline of main series. HBO has confirmed that the long night is going to be made with huge budgets on par with Game of Thrones.
