HBO's president Casey Bloys has dropped a hint about when the final season of Game of Thrones will land, Deadline reports.

Participating in a panel discussion at the Television Critics Association, Bloys said, “I’m not going to say what to expect [of the final season], though it’s pretty great," adding that it will premiere “sometime in 2019… first half.”

Obviously, this doesn't deliver much in the way of concrete information, but it does back up the clue Maisie Williams offered back in January. Talking to Metro, Williams — who plays Arya Stark — said, “We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April. That’s a four-month turnaround for these huge episodes. There’s a lot that goes into the final edit. You would not want to rush this season at all. We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities.”

During the TCA discussion, Bloys also touched on the Game of Thrones prequel, whose story has been written by OG Game of Thrones novelist George R.R. Martin and Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, and Kingsman screenwriter Jane Goldman, with Goldman handling scripting duties. Again, details were kept mostly under wraps. According to Deadline, HBO still has to cast the project and find a director, but Bloys denied stories that production would be starting in Belfast in October, but there's hope that production will start next year.

As ever, expect more details here as they arrive.
