HBO has finally announced the premiere month for its massively popular show Game of Thrones, based off the George R.R. Martin book series A Song of Ice and Fire, as April 2019. Every fight. Every sacrifice. "Every death. All #ForTheThrone".
Other than a closure-filled ending, another satisfying component of Season 8 will be seeing certain characters meeting for the first time.
As per the reports, Jane Goldman's Game of Thrones' prequel is set thousands of years before the events of the first season of Game of Thrones. David Nutter, who has directed several episodes of the eighth season, took part in a Reddit AMA and answered a few questions, including just how long these final episodes will be.
When asked how long should viewers expect the episodes to average this season, Nutter, who was behind the camera for "The Rains of Castamere", responded, "Season 8 episodes will all I think be longer than 60 minutes". When we think of GoT, brief isn't a word that comes to mind. But will there be a Red Wedding-esque moment in Season 8?
In place of new scenes, the teaser offers a roll call of some of the many, many casualties in the soon-to-conclude game of thrones, from poor Ned Stark's head-chop to Joffrey Baratheon's breathtaking exit.
Big news, Game of Thrones fans, because we now know when the final season will kick off after HBO shared the timetable alongside a new teaser.
Kit Harrington told the magazine that "Every season, you read at the end of the last script "End of Season 1" or "End of Season 2".
Because Foxtel still owns the rights to Game of Thrones in Australia, that's still the only way to watch the series, unfortunately.
