Don't get too excited for "Game of Thrones" until 2018 is over, according to information from actress Sophie Turner.

Since Game of Thrones' seventh season ended in August, anticipation has been high for the hit show's next and final installment. The show is such a monster to film, though, that 2019 is probably the better bet.

There you have it, Game of Thrones fans, season 8 is many moons away - read Variety's full interview with Turner at this link. I don't know about you but it the latter truly is the case then I will physically march to the wall myself (or to some Hollywood office and give David Benioff and D.B Weiss a piece of my mind).

When Variety quizzed her about the production schedule, she added: "We started in October, so we're maybe like a tenth of the way through".

It was really hard, because out of all the people I've worked with on the show, he has been the one who was consistent throughout, from season one to season seven. This means we have more than a year to speculate on who will die, will sit on top of the Iron Throne, and how long it will take Jon and Daenerys to realize they're related now they've they slept together. "The scripts are written and they're boarding it all out", Bloys said in July.

Well, unless George R.R. Martin decides to finally write the last book, or until we sink our teeth into the new spin-offs. [Laughs.] No, no, we've got six or seven months left.

Live like part of the Stark family with this great chance to win a weekend stay in Northern Ireland for two, equipped with an authentic tour of some of the most well-known Game of Thrones shooting locations, including the iconic Dark Hedges aka Kingsroad.

HBO has not commented on the planned release date of season eight, and representatives didn't immediately return INSIDER's request for comment.
