If you want to know exactly when the eighth season of Game of Thrones will finally debut, don’t ask Ayra Stark. Actress Maisie Williams has spoken out about a widely talked-about quote concerning the debut of the new season. Basically, that wasn’t her.

On January 24, Williams supposedly told Metro that fans would probably have to wait about 20 months between season 7 and season 8 of Game of Thrones. And though HBO is still saying season 8 will happen sometime in 2019, these comments seemed to suggest it would happen in April 2019.

But on Monday, Williams took to Twitter and said: “This Game of Thrones release date “quote” I’ve supposedly given is completely false and taken from an interview I did years ago.”

Which means, in terms of figuring out when Game of Thrones season 8 will happen, we’re all pretty much back at square one.

Maisie Williams also isn’t known to lie or mince words on her Twitter account. When fans speculated she would return to Doctor Who season 10, after her memorable role as Lady Me in Season 9, she said unequivocally, “I’m not going to be working on Doctor Who again.” And, guess what? She didn’t.

So, there you have it, if we want hints about Game of Thrones from Maisie Williams, we might want to check her Twitter account first, to make sure whatever we think she said wasn’t just a bizarre game of telephone. In the meantime, the wait until the next Game of Thrones season is still long, no matter if it’s in April or any other time in 2019.

We’re all in the Long Night while waiting on Game of Thrones Season 8. Now, possibly out of desperation, one fan has cooked up a horribly tragic theory about how Jon Snow will have to become the Night King to stop his undead army. If true, this would reshape everything we know about the Night King, Azor Ahai, and how the series will end.

Stranger Things Season 3 is set to release some time next summer. That’s a long time to wait before we can finally head back to 1980s Hawkins, Indiana, but in the meantime, a new interview with David Harbour (Jim Hopper on the Netflix series) is offering fans a taste of what’s to come when the Stranger Things Season 3 release date finally arrives.

This is some multi-reality brain magic shit.” Emma Stone’s words in the new trailer for Maniac, an upcoming Netflix original series, seem to do a pretty good job of encapsulating the plot. Created by Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (It, True Detective Season 1), and starring Stone, Jonah Hill, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux, Maniac looks like a cross between Inception and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In other words, it looks awesome.

The upcoming live-action Star Wars show will cost a whole bunch of Credits — or perhaps a whole bunch of Gold Dragons. The reported budget for Jon Favreau’s 10-episode series is $100 million, or about $10 million per episode. That puts the show on par with Game of Thrones, HBO’s tremendously expensive (and popular) fantasy series.

It’s almost time for back to school — Huntress school, that is. At RTX 2018, Rooster Teeth Animation announced the release date of the next season of the studio’s crown jewel, western anime RWBY.

RWBY Volume 6 will premiere October 27. And in an interview with Inverse, series star Lindsay Jones (the voice of Ruby Rose) reveals that Volume 6 will see the reunion of Team RWBY. The story will also build upon the significant growth of the characters from Volumes 4 and 5.
