Game of Thrones Season 8 now has a premiere date thanks to Maisie Williams.
The Arya Stark actress let loose that Game of Thrones premiers April 2019.
“We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April ,” Williams told the Metro. “That’s a four-month turnaround for these huge episodes. There’s a lot that goes into the final edit. You would not want to rush this season at all. We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities.”
Regarding her character Arya Stark, Maisie Williams offers how she wants her to finish the series.
“I would love for Arya to find her true self again and let go of this anger and revenge that’s accompanied her on this journey. I’d love for her to be happy,” Williams said.
