Game of Thrones Season 8: GoT S7 came to an end with its episode 7 and falling of The Wall. But, that doesn’t restrict the release of most popular HBO fantasy series. GoT season 8 is coming next and we are sure of it. But, there are many unanswered questions as of now, like when will it return for its final season, who are the cast, plot, spoilers, trailer, etc.
As of now, we don’t know anything of certain. We also don’t know who will return, who is gonna die, how will it end, is Bran Stark the Night King, and there are a ton of such questions. One thing is sure for the next installment. It is that it consists of six episodes only, but will have some of the longest episodes ever. The filming starts in October 2017. Let’s dig into its preview, predictions, and fan theories.
Game of Thrones Season 8 Release Date: When Will It Premiere (Return)?
Update: The network HBO has announced the official GoT season 8 premiere date. The all-new season is going to release on April 14, 2019. The filming for the all-new installment started October 2017 with showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss.
Some reports say that it will be one of the longest shooting periods for the show. The production may continue till August 2018. If this happens, then GoT won’t premiere until 2019. It won’t be the first HBO show to take such a long production time. Westworld premiered in 2016, but won’t return with season 3 until 2019. The series garnered a rabid audience.
The final season of GoT will contain only six episodes, but it will be the most extravagant ever in the history. It will feature massive wars across all continents and the dragons fighting each other will be the most watched scene. This is probably why the shooting will take place around a year to finish.
Game of Thrones Season 8 Episodes and Their Lengths: How Long Will They Be?
Having only six episodes don’t mean that GoT S8 is losing out. The length of the upcoming episodes was revealed by sound designer Paula Fairfield. Reportedly, she told that the episodes of Game of Thrones S8 will be of feature film length. It means that they would be close to 80 minutes each instead of usual 60 minutes. Moreover, the GoT season 7 finale was 80 minutes long.
GoT Season 8 Script and Plot
According to Bloys, Benioff and Weiss have already finished writing the script in the starting of the year, 2017. They are now trying to adjust how long should each episode should be in the final installment. However, Bloys didn’t confirm anything regarding the episodes. This has been officially one of the most uncommunicative tv shows at the moment.
The ending story of each of the installments is different, though.
Game of Thrones Season 8 Spoilers: Do We Know Anything Certain?
HBO hasn’t officially revealed anything yet. But, Unofficially, we do know something. And that’s a different case. Once again, HBO became a victim of hacking and leaking. Several scripts and television episodes were leaked before the official date and time. Those scripts are available on the internet. Their authenticity is a concern, though.
We may get to see romantic scenes between Jaime and Brienne. However, Tormund Giantsbane has expressed his desire to have ‘big monsters babies’ with her. Let’s see what’s on the cards.
Game of Thrones Spinoffs: Are They Going To Happen?
It has been already confirmed that HBO and A Song of Ice and Fire author George RR Martin are working on five potential spinoffs. However, you shouldn’t believe that all of those five are going to get a show. And it might be possible that none of them gets a show as pointed out by Bloys during this past summer event.
According to him, getting shows to all five is not worth it. It’s because the GoT creators Benioff and Weiss have set the hope so high that it will be tough for any new show to touch. Further, he said that he would be a concern to make one show that can live up to the hopes.
Moreover, we should expect that if any of the spinoffs made into a show, it won’t premiere anytime close to Game of Thrones season 8 finale. It is already known to fans that Martin has been working on the spin-offs for quite a time now, but any detailed information is not known yet.
However, HBO has confirmed that ideas are being taken from Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class), Brian Helgeland (A Knight’s Tale) and Carly Wray (Mad Men). Another thing already known is that these spinoffs won’t revolve around ‘Dunk and Egg’ and ‘Robert’s Rebellion’ – the prequels to A Song of Fire and Ice. Earlier, these were considered a potential candidate for spinoffs.
