Don’t worry, no spoilers ahead. We all are internally sad because Game Of Thrones season 7 last episode is going to air tomorrow and hopeful that the next season comes soon. Just like one’s death you cannot forecast about Game Of Thrones events, but we do know certain things about the upcoming season, and here they are-
GoT's final episodes have by now been penned, Bloys confirmed during the TCA press tour in July 2017. But in the show's characteristic tight-lipped style, we have no plan what happens, and most likely won't until it airs.
Although the episode count has decreased, the runtime will not. While episodes have usually been an hour long, the ones in Season 8 are clocking in at 80 minutes or more, according to GoT's sound designer, Paula Fairfield. And it seems that the team hasn't discussed a restrict on episode length (yet). "Two hours per episode seems like it would be extreme, but it's a grand show, so who knows?" HBO's Casey Bloys said.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) appeared to clue that Season 8 starts filming this fall in a new talk. "I don't know what's going to happen next season, he told Collider. "We go back in October, so maybe in the next few weeks, we'll get the scripts and I'll find out."
At the end of Season 6, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss told Variety that they only had 13 episodes left, which meant seven for Season 7 and six for Season 8.
Like the present season, Season 8 could arrive later than usual. Though the show runners are eager to air next year, the opening could be pushed back as far as 2019, since they haven't started shooting yet.
In an talk, Lena Headey hinted that her character, Cersei Lannister, makes it to the end of Season 7. "I [thought] oh, I'm going to die," she told Time, recalling the time she read the script. "And then, I went directly to the end. I was really in surprise. I think visibly, now, there's got to be some body add up at the end of [season] 8." The quotation led some fans to believe this means the Lannister ruler makes it into GoT's eighth and final season.
In June 2016, HBO programming president Casey Bloys announced Season 8 would be Game of Thrones's final. "[The show runners] have a very detailed map about the number of seasons they desire to do," he said during a press tour. "If I could get them to do more I would take 10 more seasons. But we take their lead on what they [need] to make the best account of their show."
