The final season of 'Game of Thrones' won't air until 2019

But. I. Can't. Wait. That. Long.

Game of Thrones fans, if you were hoping 2018 would be the year you'd see the fantasy epic's denouement, we've got some bad news.

HBO announced on Thursday that the final six episodes of the show won't air until 2019.

That's so far away, there's even an outside chance George R.R. Martin will have finished his next book by then.

The crucial update will be when in 2019 the show will air ... it would really suck if they said December.

The New York Times reports the 2019 air date comes even though shooting started this past October and it has fewer episodes than previous seasons.

But, it's worth noting, the remaining six episodes are expected to be the longest ever broadcast, which in turn increases the length of the shoot.

Needless to say, not everyone sees it that way.
