We’ve had our suspicions, and yesterday, HBO has finally announced that the hit series Game of Thrones will return for its six-episode, eighth and final season same time as the U.S. in 2019. And now we know that it’s not going to be like The Deathly Hollows, in which a similarly long-standing hit series divvied up its final chapter into two — it’s just going to be one season with each episode will be feature-length or anywhere from 60 to 120 minutes.
Directors for the new season are: David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik. Writers for the new season are: David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
Season seven credits: The executive producers of Game of Thrones are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers, Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin.
