Big news for GOT fans, the show won't return until 2019 and the fans have to wait for a long time - a complete year! The writers on the final season include Benioff, Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill. While those 12.1 million people who watched the episode as it aired, making it the most-watched episode in the history of GOT series. The season only consists of six episodes, but each one of them might be as long as a feature film.
The network also confirmed that series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are among the directors for the final season with Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter. We'd heard rumors of the shortened season order and thus, we're planning for this but to hear that its six episodes and not seven (like Season 7) is a bit disappointing.
Ben Crompton, who plays Night's Watch brother Eddison Tollett in the HBO series, is now filming the eighth season and revealed how there's still a fair amount of shooting left on the project.
Mariah Carey is back!
Mariah Carey performs during Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve at Times Square on December 31, 2017 in New York City. The singer then launched into her 1993 ballad Hero with backup singers in white robes behind her.
It's uncertain when exactly the next season of the series will premiere in 2019, but previous rumours have alluded to it happening during the earlier part of the year.
The fans are extremely excited for this release, and many already have different ideas about what will happen in the final season. Co-showrunners Benioff and Weiss have written numerous episodes, including the season seven finale "The Dragon and the Wolf", but the series finale will be their first co-directing credit.
