Game Of Thrones co-showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss spoke with Deadlineand revealed why the final season is taking so long (returning in 2019)…

David Benioff: “The final season’s taking a long time because it’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done,” Benioff said. “It was nearly a full year in Belfast either prepping it or actually shooting it. I think when people see it they’re going to understand why it took so long. The last season is far beyond what we’ve ever attempted before.”

George RR Martin on The Show’s Legacy: “I don’t know if [Game of Thrones] has changed television, but it has changed science fiction and fantasy television,” he said. “And we’ve achieved a level of respectability thanks to the genius of these actors, producers, and writers. That has made us equal to any genre. We’re not done with Westeros yet — we have plenty of story to tell.”
