Game of Thrones fans all around the world were more than a little upset over news that the break in between last season's finale in 2017, and the premiere of the final season of the series which was revealed to be at some point in 2019.

But we are in luck! 

During Television Critics Association Summer Press TourHBO programming president Casey Bloys hinted at when the premiere would actually premiere, and instead of the arbitrary, "I don't think we've announced the date, so sometime in '19" like expected, he dropped that the Season 8 premiere will be in the "first half" of 2019. 

Granted, March and April is usually when the Game of Thrones seasons tend to begin, but with all the weirdness of how this last season is going to play out with the extended episode lengths, and the season only having 6 "installments", any info is good info, am I right?
