April 2019 might just be the beginning of the end for Game of Thrones
, based on an interview released by British newspaper Metro
, in which cast member Maisie Williams hinted about the season 8 premiere. However, Williams took to Twitter to shoot down the report.
HBO Confirms Game of Thrones Final Season to Air in 2019>>>
"We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April ," the GoT
actress, who plays Arya Stark,
said in the interview, which according to Williams was taken years ago.
Though HBO already confirmed the show would conclude next year, the network didn't reveal exactly when. "We have announced 2019," a spokesperson told HuffPost
. "Nothing more specific than that at this time."
Whether or not GoT kicks off in April 2019, fans will still have to wait a long time before the show returns. Meanwhile, speculations about the show continue to unfold, including the theory that that the old Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow) is actually future Bran.
There may have been hints about this theory throughout the show, including a scene in season 6 where the Three-Eyed Raven says it's time for Bran "to become me." In season 3, Jojen also comes to Bran in a dream and says the raven "is you."
The actor who plays Jojen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, likes this idea the most compared to the many other theories about Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright.)
"Yeah, I kind of went with that one. I like the theory of multiverses and different parallel universes working together in time. I just quite like that theory. I went with that and like the idea of that," he told the HuffingtonPost
"You got to be careful you don't lose people -- what people love about a certain show," he said of the idea of time-travel theories. "But, like I said, I like all that."
How do you feel about this theory?
