Although Sophie Turner, who previously played Sansa Stark, revealed in an interview that the eighth season of “Game of Thrones” will not be broadcast until 2019, but it has not been confirmed by HBO.
But today, HBO finally officially confirmed that the last season’s “Game of Thrones” really did not wait until 2019, and the specific time has not yet been announced.
The good news is that HBO gathered a strong team of screenwriters and directors for the final season.
The producers of “Game of Thrones” David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will once again co-direct a film. Previously, the two had jointly directed the first season of the fourth season, “Two Swords (two swords)”, which produced HBO’s highest viewing record in five years (although the record was later broken by the new season).

In addition, Miguel Sapochnik, who has directed the last two episodes of the sixth season, “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter”, will return to the eighth season of the director. Two episodes.

Who can forget the “blood wedding” in the third season and the scene of Jon Snow’s death in the last episode of the fifth season? The good news is that David Nutter, who has directed the two episodes, will return to the eighth season, directing three of them.

In addition to the strong production lineup, the last six seasons of the season, it is likely that all will be the length of a single film.
Moreover, in order to ensure that the content of the last season is not leaked, HBO will also deliberately shoot a bunch of true and false endings, “Dragon Mother” Emilia Clarke has revealed that even the actors do not know which ending is true. I am really grateful to HBO for trying hard to prevent spoilers.
Although this wait is quite long, it is worthwhile if you can exchange for the very high quality final season.
