The White Walkers have gotten through The Wall with a monster under their command, and Westeros’ fate rests in the hands of a Stark knave, a substantial drinking dwarf, a anonymous young lady, a red-headed schemer, a kid turned-Raven, and the Mother of Dragons.
Round of Thrones’ eighth and last season looks set to be an epic dash to the end of George RR Martin’s immense story of rulers, rulers and homeless people.
Anyway, what do we think about the up and coming season? Look no further, as gamesofthronesseason8.comThe Independent has put together a complete rundown of all that we right now think about season eight, from new cast individuals and story theory to air dates and how to watch.
How To watch
HBO first confirmed that Game of Thrones would return inthe ‘first half’ of 2019, persuading that the series will likely be back April 2019. The system at that point affirmed that, yes, Game of Thrones would be back in April, but chosen not to uncover the correct date.
Maisie Williams – who plays Arya – recently let slip that the “our first scene [will air] in April”. Watchers in the US can watch on HBO. Sky Atlantic and NOW TV will simulcast each scene in the UK. You will also have the capacity to get up via NOW TV.
How Many Episode?
Though the initial six seasons all comprised of 10 scenes, season seven was comprised of just seven. Showrunners David Benioff and D B Weiss have decided to similarly limit the length of season eight, choosing only six scenes. (The team initially wanted to discharge three full length films, as opposed to six scenes, yet HBO conflicted with the choice.) Reports have recently guaranteed that every scene will likewise keep running for around 80 to a hour and a half – longer than the ordinary a hour for the show.
Additionally of note: every scene cost a rumoured $15 million to deliver. Reports differ on how much the cast have been paid, but Variety previously asserted Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) all got $500,000 (£384,000) per scene.
Writers and Directors
David Nutter – best known for directing the notorious Red Wedding – returns to steerage three episodes of the last six, including the premiere, which is composed by Dave Hill (who was behind last season’s scene “Eastwatch”). Producer Bryan Cogman has composed the second scene, while Benioff and Weiss have composed the last four.
“Clash of the Bastards” executive Miguel Sapochnik returns for scenes three and five, while Benioff and Weiss will follow in the strides of other showrunners (counting those behind Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, and Mad Men) in coordinating the simple last scene of their show.
Whoe’s Coming Back
Alongside all the fundamental cast, Carice van Houten recently let slip that the Red Woman will return in a now-deleted Instagram post. Welsh on-screen character Wilf Scolding, who played Jon Snow’s genuine father RhaegarTargaryen during the season seven finale, also hinted at his arrival on Instagram – the post has, obviously, been erased.
