5 Hit TV Shows Returning In 2019; From 'Game Of Thrones' To 'Peaky Blinders'

Game Of Thrones

Sometimes it takes more than 12 months to put together a fantastic season of one of the world's leading TV shows.

Most of the time, we'll get a new season of a hit television series just under a year after the release of the final episode in the current season. Sometimes however, it takes a little longer for those working behind-the-scenes to bring their shows back to the small screen. In fact, it's becoming more of a trend with every month that passes by to keep audiences waiting around two years before getting another hit of their favourite show. With all of that in mind, we've decided to take a look at 5 of the biggest series in the world, which won't be making a comeback until 2019 despite their last outings being in 2017...

Game Of Thrones

HBO have given the go ahead for Jane Goldman's 'Game of Thrones' prequel series' pilot episode, which could air as soon as 2020 if officially ordered.

'Game Of Thrones' may be on its way out, but what we've known for some time now is that HBO aren't willing to give up on the land of Westeros and beyond. With a number of different spinoffs in development behind-the-scenes, from acclaimed writers such as Max Borenstein, Brian Helgeland, Brian Cogman, and Carly Wray, it would seem the network have now decided in which direction they'll go with the fantasy property when time's up on the original show.

Serving as a showrunner on the episode, she'll move into a full series if the network decide to go ahead with the project.

Ed Sheeran Game Of Thrones

Director Jeremy Podeswa defended Sheeran's cameo appearance in the season 7 curtain-raiser in an interview with The Daily Beast.

After his cameo appearance in ‘Game Of Thrones’ this weekend that sharply divided viewers on social media, the show’s director has come to Ed Sheeran’s defence saying that the singer is a “lovely performer” who “deserved to be there”.

In fact, the reaction was such that 26 year old Sheeran quit Twitter altogether in the wake of the season premiere of the seventh series of ‘Game of Thrones’ on Sunday night (July 16th). However, the HBO fantasy show’s director, Jeremy Podeswa, has told The Daily Beast in a new interview that he felt Sheeran’s appearance was appropriate.

Ed Sheeran Game Of Thrones

The singer received nothing but criticism for his 'GoT' cameo.

He gave us fair warning, but Ed Sheeran has finally decided to scrap his Twitter account altogether now after a stream of hate messages following his 'Game Of Thrones' cameo. There was barely enough screen time for him to have had a poor performance, but that didn't stop his biggest critics.

We have a feeling that Ed's brief spell as a singing soldier in season 7 of 'Game of Thrones' was meant to be a tongue-in-cheek moment for the series, but there were a lot of people out there who felt angry about his involvement in the episode 'Dragonstone'. As a result, he's shut down his Twitter account in a bid to stem the flow of hate.

Ahead of the imminent return of ‘Game Of Thrones’ for its seventh season, Emilia Clarke has spoken about stripping off on-screen, saying she gets “a lot of cr**” for it.

The 30 year old British star, who has played Daenerys Targaryen since the HBO series began in 2011, has been working hard promoting the seventh series ahead of its return this weekend. In a new interview for the US August edition of Elle magazine, she opened up about what it is like to bare all on screen, and reveals that she gets a lot of unfair criticism for it.

Specifically referring to her up-close-and-personal encounter with Daario Naharis (played by Michael Huisman) in season four, she said: “It’s brilliant. I actually went up to [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and thanked them. I was like, ‘That’s a scene I’ve been waiting for!’ Because I get a lot of c**p for having done nude scenes and sex scenes.”
