Fans Aren’t Too Happy After This ‘Game of Thrones’ Announcement About the Final Season

What’s happening?

HBO has officially confirmed that “Game of Thrones” fans will have to wait until next year to see the final season of the hit show.

The decision to hold on season 8 partly stems from creative reasons: Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss want to take their time crafting the six episodes that will make up the closing season. It’s also a practical move since HBO can focus on the upcoming 2018 Emmys (season 7 of “Game of Thrones” is eligible for this awards season).

Uh-oh. How long will I have to wait?

TBD. Entertainment Weekly pointed out that a spring launch was the norm for the show every year until season 7, so a spring 2019 premiere seems likely. But HBO is still keeping a premiere date for the final season under wraps.

On today’s show, Jeffy couldn’t believe he has to wait until next year for the final season of “Game of Thrones.”

“Why must I wait until 2019?” he demanded.

PAT: Pat and Jeffy on the Glenn Beck Program.

He's back Monday morning.

JEFFY: Blah, blah, blah. It's global warming. It's climate change.

We've released some land in Anwar and drilled some oil. Big deal. Why must I wait until 2019? 2019 before I see the new season of Game of Thrones. Why? Why, Pat?

PAT: It's a bad move on their part too because you lose that passion for it. In the year and a half while you're waiting, if you've seen all the seasons already, you're not going to be as adamant, as passionate about it.

JEFFY: I waited. I waited. I waited. So that I could binge through them. I just finished a month and a half ago, something like that, so I had 2018, with the final season. I'd be all caught up, good to go.

PAT: And now you got to wait.

Who else did this? Sopranos did that. The HBO series west world seems to be doing that right now.

JEFFY: Yeah, I know.

PAT: So --

JEFFY: The Game of Thrones was so good. I was -- if they can make the last season worthy, you know --

PAT: And that is -- is the -- is season eight the last? Is it?

JEFFY: Yeah, that's it.

PAT: Oh, wow.

JEFFY: The guys who write it and a big part of it have already signed new deals for new shows, as soon as Game of Thrones is over. I think they signed it with Amazon. I think they were like, we'll do the shows for you sooner or later.

Oh, okay. No problem.

PAT: So that throws everybody into a waiting pattern.

JEFFY: Right. Yeah.

PAT: If you're looking for a movie to see this weekend, here's what opens: Insidious: The Last Key. Is that a horror movie? Goldbuster. Project Eden. And The Strange Ones, all open.

JEFFY: Boy, they sound like billion-dollar movies right there. Every one you mentioned sounds like it will be at least a billion dollars worldwide.

PAT: Never heard of any of them.

Have you seen Star Wars yet? Last Jedi?

JEFFY: No. No. We covered this.

PAT: Well, we covered it on Tuesday. You could have seen it.

JEFFY: Busy. Busy.

PAT: You're busy.

JEFFY: I got other shows to be on. I don't have time to be in the theater.

PAT: Okay. Busy.

Jeff Fisher, busy? Everybody knows that's a lie.

JEFFY: I've had things to do.

PAT: Everybody knows. All right. We'll see you back Monday, immediately following this show on Pat Gray Unleashed on TheBlaze Radio and TV Network.

Also, Glenn is back on this show Monday. Have a great weekend.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
