HBO released 14 new still shots from the eighth and last season of the Game of Thrones series, which will premiere on the 14th of April this year.
The eighth and final season of the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones was announced by HBO in July 2016. Unlike the first six seasons that each had ten episodes and the seventh that had seven episodes, the eighth season will have only six episodes. Each of those will be as long as a feature film.
“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”, – HBO.
On the published stills you can see the entire main cast of the project – Kit Harington (John Snow), Emilia Clark (Daenerys Targaryen), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Macy Williams (Arya Stark), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Isaac Hempstead (Bran Stark), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) and Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth).
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM GAME OF THRONES FINALE
Earlier this year, in mid-January, HBO released the official teaser for the final of the Game of Thrones. Although HBO has been reticent to reveal much about what to expect, but this hasn’t stopped fans from theorising. In the video you can see the crypt of the Winterfell Castle, where John Snow, Arya and Sansa Stark gather. They find their statues in the family tomb and, apparently, meet with the White Walkers.
Mark your calendars and get ready. We’ve calculated that if you want to re-watch all the episodes of Game of Thrones just in time for the final season, you should start today, and watch 1 episode every day.
