Over the past few days, I’ve been binge watching Game of Thrones to catch up. Before the Season 7 Premiere on Sunday July 16.
Yes! HBO’s Game Of Thrones is back, in case you weren’t aware. Sunday nights and Mondays are once again packed with GoTers getting extremely excited at the latest adventures.
This being the last two seasons, the series is going to bring together characters from the show’s distant locations and confirm or deny theories that fans have had for years.
A few sneaky bits of information about the upcoming seasons, have been revealed by the show’s creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and some cast members who have been making the rounds to promote the show.
We already knew that season seven would contain two of the longest episodes in the series’ history. But it seems that the eighth and final season will be going a step further with a series of extended installments.
It was revealed that the six episodes of season eight will follow season seven’s 82-minute-long format.
As a reminder, HBO programming director Casey Bloys already hinted that the show would be taking a more cinematic turn. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he said:
“The show has proven that TV is every bit as impressive and in many cases more so, than film. What they’re doing is monumental. When you see these battles in season 7, and what I imagine season 8 will be, it’s a big, big show.”
While we were all bummed out to discover season eight would be made up of fewer episodes, this latest news seems to make up for it. We do have a bit of a wait in store, however, with the eighth chapter not expected to air until 2019.
In the meantime, are you prepared for early mornings, coz spoilers?. You are not alone, here’s KOT’s deepest concern coming next week.
