The final season of Game of Thrones is set to debut the ‘first half’ of 2019 according to HBO’s programming president, Casey Bloys.

Bloys attended Television Critics Association event on Wednesday.

Furthermore, he told Deadline at said event, the prequel to Game of Thrones will not focus on a specific character but rather a group effort.

Bloys said  the screenwriter did not center things around a male or female protagonist in her script.

Currently, HBO is  negotiating with a casting director as it plans commencing with production in 2019.

Last month, HBO released a synopsis of what viewers can expect from the highly-anticipated preview,according to Daily Mail.

All in all, it was as follows:

‘Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour,’ the network said.

‘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.
