Hello! Since the news on Game of Thrones have been piling up for a while now I figured I'd put them all in one place. I'm going to update the thread if anything important comes up. #1 The show will return for Season 7 early in the summer, not in spring as we're used to. Since the 'winter is coming' the producers want to start filming later in the year and finish in February to make use of the dark season. Which doesn't leave enough time for post-production for a spring release. #2 Season 7 will have only 7 episodes. The show itself is wrapping up in 13-15, leaning more towards 13. That means... #3 Season 8 will only have 6 (maybe 8) episodes and will be the final season of Game of Thrones. #4 The directors for the next season are: Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod and Matt Shakman. These, for me, are perhaps the most disappointing news - there's no Miguel Sapochnik in the list who directed Battle of the Bastards and The Winds of Winter last season and Hardhome in Season 5. He is, however, going to return for the final episodes of the show in Season 8. I'm also leaving an in-production tease if anyone's interested. Nothing new but for a single line in the upcoming season.
