Now, thanks to HBO's programming president Casey Bloys, we know it will arrive during the "first half" of next year.

As for that one Game of Thrones prequel pilot (out of the five originally ordered), HBO is officially moving ahead with one as previously reported last month.

The final season of Game of Thrones doesn't have an official return date yet, but the final six episodes will air in 2019.

Israel suspends fuel deliveries to Gaza over arson attacks
An Israeli military spokesman declined to comment, but said its actions would depend on what happens on the ground. Three Israelis were wounded when a rocket hit a house in the city of Sderot near the Gaza Strip, authorities said.

Bloys briefly discussed the network's protocol for handling the situation "Any time something comes up on a show with somebody we're in business with", noting the pay cabler did scrap its relationship with Russell Simmons and with Mark Halperin in wake of credible sex harassment claims. Here's what Bloys had to say about it.

Though it's been almost a year since Game of Thrones Season 7 came to an end, fans are still hungry for any news about the George RR Martin series. So far, the upcoming prequel series is being described as "the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour". He also noted that "three more Game of Thrones prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development". And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend... it's not the story we think we know.

Bloys confirmed the prequel won't start shooting until early 2019.
