Sansa Stark may want to watch her back, because she just dropped a big possible reveal about Game of Thrones’ last season. Sophie Turner told Variety in a new interview that the eighth and final season will premiere in 2019, meaning that we have over a year to go before the next episodes of the show.

When talking about her schedule over the next year, Turner said, “Yeah, I’m really excited. Game of Thrones comes out in 2019. [X-Men] Dark Phoenix is in November. Then I have a couple indie movies coming out.” She added that there are still six to seven months left in shooting for the final season.

A rep for HBO would not confirm Turner’s comments and said no scheduling decisions had been made yet. That said, Turner’s comments support previous hints that the last season wouldn’t arrive in 2018, including Liam Cunningham saying in October that filming for the show wouldn’t finish until the summer.
