The final season of the fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” is being released in just a few days on HBO.
This is a huge news for lots of people without a doubt.
Obviously the series made a huge success over the past years since the first season premier in 2011.
People all over the world and not just in USA are following this series and are anticipating for the last season that will be aired in 14th April on HBO.
The official filming began on October 23, 2017 and ended on July 2018
Shockingly this last season of “Games of thrones” is going to be shorter than the previous seasons.
The last season will only be of six episodes due to the smaller content remaining in the story.
As a result this epic fantasy will end in May 2019.
The Eighth season of “Game of Thrones” is based on the story lines of “A song of ice and fire” that still not published.
January 2017, Season 8 renewal was put on hold for unknown time. This kind of hold was due to a disagreement between HBO and the showrunners.
They both had a disagreement over the number of episodes that the last season of “Game of throne” will contain.
Benioff and Weiss said they intended 6 for Season 8 but clearly the show-runners wanted to make more than six episodes for this last season of “Game of Thrones”.
This season no new writers will be introduces and the episodes is going to be divided as following:
The first episode by Dave Hill , Bryan Cogman the second episode. the last remaining episodes will be divided up between Benioff and Weiss. George R.R. Martin will not take part in scripting another episode.
as for the directors the episodes will be divided up between directors David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik. Miguel, confirmed he is working on episodes 3 and 5. The episodes 1, 2 and 4 will be left to David Nutter.
Benioff & Weiss will also direct the series finale, as they have worked as directors on several episodes in prior TV seasons.
The first and the second episodes will be around 54-60 minutes.
The third episode run-time of 82 minutes, the fourth episode is 78 minutes and the final two episodes will be of 80 minutes each.
The characters that survived from season 7 will be the one appearing in the final season but this is not a sure thing as many surprises can happen.
We are all waiting for this final season of “Games of Thrones”to know who will be the winner of this epic war although we are sad because of the fact that this awesome series is going to end.
