Game Of Thronesseason 8 release date
Game Of Thrones season 8 release date is... drum roll please... 14th April 2019!
Ages and ages ago HBO confirmed in an official statement that Game Of Thrones season 8 wouldn't be with us until 2019
The statement reads: "The epic fantasy series Game of Thrones will return for its six-episode, eighth and final season in 2019.
"David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season. Writers for the new season are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
"The executive producers of the series are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield. Co-executive producers are Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin."
We kinda already knew this because Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark confirmed to Variety that the eighth and final season of GOT won't air until 2019 but we were hoping she might have got her wires crossed or summat. She said: "I'm really excited. Game Of Thrones comes out in 2019." She added that HBO's hit series still has "six or seven months left" of production, before joking, "we started in October, so we’re maybe like a tenth of the way through."
How many episodes will there be in Game Of Thrones season 8?
We’ve been told by the showrunners that Game Of Thrones season 8 will be another short one. We’re looking at six episodes.
How long will the episodes be in Game Of Thrones season 8?
Okay, so we’re getting fewer episodes (six in season 8), but we were told a while ago that they will be longer.
And now we know for sure what the episode lengths will be Episode one: 54 minutes
Episode two: 58 minutes
Episode three: 60 minutes
Episode four: 78 minutes
Episode five: 80 minutes
Episode six: 80 minutes
A while back, HBO's Casey Bloys said: "Two hours per episode seems like it would be excessive, but it's a great show, so who knows?"
And Liam Cunningham, who play Ser Davos, revealed in October to TV Guide: "[The episodes are] definitely going to be bigger and what I hear is longer.
"We're filming right up until the summer. When you think about it, up until last season we'd have six months to do ten episodes, so we're [doing] way more than that for six episodes. So that obviously will translate into longer episodes."
