It has been exactly 595 days since the last episode of Game of Thrones (GOT) season 7 aired back in September of 2017. GOT fans have had to wait just shy of two years for the new season. A wait that has been both daunting and excruciating of course. So, when American Network HBO announced that the final season of Game of Thrones was set to return to TV and laptop screens around the world on April 14th, 2019 everyone literally lost their minds.
And because celebrities are human too, they have not been able to escape the GOT mania. With the first episode of the final season airing last night on American screens our very own DSTV did the damn things and aired it at 3:00 am South African time.
Minnie was also asked about her Game of Thrones obsession during the E! Africa Awards where she visibly couldn’t contain her excitement. A clip that DSTV used to promote the DSTV airing times for the new season.
Of course, there are celebrities who have also never watched a single episode of the show, which is such a shame really. Cassper Nyovest took to Twitter to express how photographer friend Jabu Nkosi couldn’t wait to watch the medieval fantasy smash hit series.
Fashion designer to the stars Thula Sindi also couldn’t hide his excitement for the return of the series simply tweeting “let's do this!!!!”
Khaya Dlanga decided to play on words, after clearly having already watched the first episode by revealing some spoilers. Seriously Khaya what is the first rule of fight club?
TV host Anele Mdoda pointed out how this was certainly a great week for both the Beehive and Thronies. Referencing the return of the show and also the airing of Beyoncé’s Netflix Special airing this Wednesday.
It seems winter has finally arrived and we are all way too excited.
