Why Game Of Thrones Season 8 Is Taking So Long

The HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones premiered in 2011, with new seasons arriving on a yearly basis through the seventh season in 2017. Season 8, the show's last, won't premiere until 2019, meaning fans are waiting longer than ever between seasons.

But why the wait? Showrunner David Benioff said at the Emmys (where it won Best Drama) that the long wait is due in part to the size and scope of the final season.

Why's the final season of #GameOfThrones taking so long, you ask? David Benioff,...

Nintendo Switch Online's NES Games Can Be Played Offline For A Week

It turns out they can, but there's...

As it turns out, that delay was due to developer Saber Interactive finalizing a publishing deal with 2K--hence the "2K" now in the game's name. It's a deal which Saber CEO Matthew Karch says has been very positive for the game. "The most fundamental change is that it's just...
