Game of Thrones Season 8 Release Date: Did George R.r. Martin Calls “Toxic” Backlash?

The eighth and final season of HBO's fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones began on April 14, 2019, and ended on May 19, 2019.

Unlike the first six seasons, which each had ten episodes, and the seventh season, which had seven episodes, the eighth season has only six episodes.

The season was filmed from October 2017 to July 2018 and largely consists of original content not found in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, as well as material revealed to showrunners by Martin about the series' upcoming novels, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. David Benioff and D. B. Weiss adapted the season for television.

The eighth and final season of the HBO series received a lot of requests for a remake, and some fans even criticized the entire production.
