An Interview with Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), by Jay Penske’s Gold Derby, shows that the final season of Game of Thrones will see Westeros coming together to battle the Night King and his Army of the Dead, but that isn’t the only threat to Jon, Daenerys and company as Queen Cersei still sits on the Iron Throne, a position she’s unlikely to give up without a fight. Also, She added that “it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before”.

The final season of Game of Thrones is expected to air in summer (June – September) 2019, and will consist of six feature length episodes.
