With the announcement of spring 2019 the launch of season 8 of “Game of Thrones”, one thing is now certain: Winter is here.
The eighth and last season of the megahit HBO series is fast approaching, and although premium cables have taken CIA level precautions to prevent spoilers leaking out, some details begin to take shape.
This is what we know so far about the epic fantasy series last season.
A few more months
“Thronespel” may have cooled season 7 last year, but fans have to wait a little longer for the eightth and last season of the hitfantasia. HBO revealed in a campaign video on Tuesday that the new fee will arrive in April 201
9, without any specific date offered.
Less is more
Standing at six episodes, the new installment will definitely be shorter than previous seasons, which has usually cut 10 episodes. But fewer episodes mean that each can be longer.
“When you think about it, until last season we had six months to do ten episodes,” said Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos. “So, we are [doing] far more than six episodes. So, of course, it will be translated into longer episodes.”
It may extend to even duration lengths of 80 minutes or longer. “Two hours per episode seems to be exaggerated, but it’s a good show, so who knows?” HBO’s Casey Bloys said.
The Haunting of GoT Houses
The exhibition has not uploaded an official trailer yet, but the executive producer and author Bryan Cogman has retarded the overall theme of the eighth season.
“It’s about all these unequal characters come together to meet a common enemy who manages their own past and defines the person they want to be for some death,” told Cogman for EW. “It’s an incredibly emotional, hesitant, bitter sick last season, and I think it’s very worth what
is going to happen – which turns this kind of story on the head.”
Who does Cut?
“Thronespel” is like Russian roulette when it comes to surviving another season, and every actor who makes it to the next round seems as surprised as the audience is watching. Lena Headey, who plays the rogue Cersei Lannister, thought her character would not make it to the end of season 7.
“I [assumed] oh, I will die,” she told Time to read the script. “And then I went straight to the end. I was really in shock. I think of course, now there must be some body counting at the end of [season] 8.”
Cersei’s brother / lover Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) comes to go north to maybe search for Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) or Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and Davos also do that to the eighth season. And maybe the best news: direwolf ghost comes back! Visuan’s visual editor Joe Bauer confirmed it and told Huffington Post that the fluffy fan’s favorite “has a lot of screening time” during the new season.
We know Season 8 will start at Winterfell because Daeners Army makes their way there, and because Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) is in charge of the capital in the north, they have to collide . Although she has power, Turner said that her character may be “a little lost” because she’s finally off with Littlefinger.
John Bradley, who plays the lovely Samwell Tarly, said that all the characters are “a totally strange environment at some points” in the new season. It may mean something, but fans guess Sam can go to King’s Landing.
Besides what is already known there are some speculations, including that Jon Snow will find out who his true parents are. Last season, it was confirmed that Jon was not Ned Stark’s father, but rather Ned’s sister Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryens. If Jon talks, it can make things difficult between him and his lover / daughter, Daenerys. The series also pointed out last season that Daenerys is soon pregnant with Jon’s children, which in turn makes their relationship even more complicated / icky.
Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) has six names left on her death list and it is quite likely. At the end of season 8 she will be able to cross more names, including Hound (Rory McCann), Berg (Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson ) and Melisandre (Carice van Houten). And speaking of the Red Priestess, she warned Varys (Conleth Hill) in season 7 that she will return to Westero’s “one last time.” I must die in this strange country, just like you. “
A prequel is in the work
“Thronespel” can end, but the world’s show can not end anytime soon. HBO has given a pilot order to a prequel series, one of five projects of “Thrones” projects in motion. Adding thousands of years before the events of “Game of Thrones”, the new show violates the world’s autumn from Heroes Age to its sharpest time. If all these projects are picking out, we can watch a dominated pop culture landscape in a “Game of Thrones” for another 20 or 30 years.
