Sophie Turner confirms Game of Thrones season 8 premiere – and it's not good news

GAME of Thrones fans have a long time to wait for that final season.

CONFIRMED: Sophie Turner has revealed Game of Thrones season 8 is out in 2018

When Game of Thrones season seven ended earlier this year, fans knew there would be a longer wait than normal until the next.

There had been speculation that instead of a spring launch, Game of Thrones season eight would come at the end of 2018 or early 2019.

Now, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, has confirmed everyone's worst nightmare.

Speaking about her upcoming projects, the 21-year-old told Variety: "I'm really excited. Game of Thrones comes out in 2019."

During season seven, Sansa's right-hand man, Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) was knocked off after she realised he'd been trying to turn the Stark girls against each other.

Sophie teased that in season eight, fans will see her struggle to cope with the challenges ahead.

She continued: "This season, there's a new threat, and all of a sudden she finds herself somewhat back in the deep end.

"And without Littlefinger, it's a test for her of whether she can get through it. It's a big challenge for her, without this master manipulator having her back."

With the show coming to an end after season eight, Sophie revealed the cast has been spending more time together.

Luckily for the British actress, she won't be out of work once the HBO show closes and fans find out who ends up on the Iron Throne.

Next year, she takes the lead in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which is scheduled for a November release.

The movie is set around 10 years after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, and the team of mutants have become national heroes.

Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) begins to get a bit of an ego and sends the X-Men to space on a rescue mission.
