HBO made public the list of releases that will be offered to its audience in 2018, although the most anticipated of all, Game of Thrones, is not considered on that list. This confirms that the wait will be long and that the production of the eighth and last season, as had been speculated, will take time to arrive, probably until the first quarter of 2019.
They announced that among the productions for next year will be Here Now, starring the Oscar-winning actors, Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter, in addition to the political drama Succession produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
“The collection of programming that we will have in 2018 is a source of great satisfaction, and demonstrates our commitment to continue offering bold, high-quality and innovative content that will surely continue to captivate our audiences,” said Gustavo Grossmann, Vice President Networks corporate, HBO Latin America.
With this, it is ruled out that the final season of Game Of Thrones will be released next year, being left behind until 2019.

The first is a drama starring Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter about a liberal American family that must face the reality of the country, now led by an ultra-conservative president. “It’s a series created and written by Allan Ball, the same creator of True Blood and Six Feet Under, so we can expect it to be very creative,” Grossman said.
Barry, meanwhile, is a comedy by the same team from Sillicon Valley and tells the story of a hitman who discovers a hidden passion: theater. It stars Bill Hader, a former member of Saturday Night Live.
“Succession is the story of a very powerful family, owner of a media empire inherited by the children. However things start to go wrong and the patriarch must return from retirement to take the reins, “said Grossman. It is a political drama produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay and starring Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook.
Sharp Objects, finally, is a drama written by Marti Noxon, based on Gillian Flynn’s book and directed by Jean Marc Vallée, focused on a crime reporter played by Amy Adams.
To all this is added the new seasons of Divorce, Crashing, Silicon Valley, Westworld, Ballers, Insecure, The Deuce and Veep, in its final season.
