If you are an avid fan of Game of Thrones, we’ve got news for you. HBO has officially confirmed that the long-running fantasy series will be returning for its eighth and final season this coming 2019.
According to the announcement, the latest season will be comprised of six episodes. Naturally, fans of the show are excited to watch what will happen within those episodes.
Well one thing’s for sure – 2019 can’t come soon enough!
Directors and writers have been named for Game of Thrones Season 8.
According to HBO, the shows eighth season will be directed by David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik. Writers for the new season will be David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
Meanwhile, the series will have David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield as executive producers along with Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin as co-executive producers.
Following last year’s hacking, HBO is now doing its best to protect the new season against spoilers.
A report by Unilad tells us that the studio is “going to film fake scenes to confuse fans” plus “they’ll also not be giving actors scripts” in an attempt to prevent potential leaks.
Last August, the script of the first 5 episodes of the 7th season was leaked online by a certain ‘Mr Smith’. Shortly thereafter, plot details were also revealed on Reddit.
Now HBO is taking extreme efforts to avoid such things from happening.
During the early seasons, actors always had hard-copy of the scripts before they began shooting their scenes. This season, however, will be “the most secure yet,” wrote Unilad, “with the actors even being given earpieces so they can be fed their dialogue to deliver, line by line.”
The award-winning show is based on the best-selling book series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ by George R. R. Martin.
Since it debuted as a series, Game of Thrones has won numerous awards including 38 Primetime Emmy Awards, 5 Screen Actors Guild Award, and a Peabody Award.
In 2016, the show even ranked #7 on Empire’s ‘The 50 Best TV Shows Ever’ plus Rolling Stone also named it the 12th ‘greatest TV show of all time’.
