Game of Thrones season 7 isn't even finished yet, but fans are already dreading the inevitable year-long wait until next season. To keep us going, a rumored air date for season 8 has been unveiled — September 2018.

The news came from Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, aka Jaime Lannister, who told Collider that filming recommences this October. "I don’t know what’s going to happen next season," he said. "We go back in October, so maybe in the next few weeks, we’ll get the scripts and I’ll find out. I’m very curious.”

Based on past seasons, this should mean that filming will finish sometime in April, and if post production takes as long as it did for season 7, then a September 2018 air date would be likely.

Season 8 will be the show's shortest yet, with just six episodes in total. But as a small consolation, the episodes will likely be longer, with rumors circulating that each episode will be an hour and 30.

Of course, just because filming will begin soon doesn't mean that HBO will keep to that schedule. In an interview with EW, HBO chief Casey Bloy suggested that the final season of the show could be pushed back as late as 2019 because GoT's showrunners will need to "write the episodes and figure out the production schedule," but let's all hope that isn't true.
