On Thursday, an intriguing Game of Thrones theory arose surrounding the dagger Arya Stark is holding in a photo that graces Entertainment Weekly's May 30 cover. They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule. The costumes, as Digital Spy noted, were clearly made for the winter weather, which is a further sign that they are indeed will be preparing for major battles between families and the army of the Night's King.
While It remains unclear exactly when the final season will air on the cabler, it seems that Benioff and Weiss are under no pressure to get the series wrapped up in the immediate future. Earlier there were reports that Season 8 would air in 2018. It will turn out to be a 73-hour movie, but it's stayed relatively the same of having the beginning, middle and now we're coming to the end.
While these extended episodes have become the norm for the season bookends, it's brought into question whether we could expect longer episodes throughout considering the shorter seven-episode run.
Recall, the seventh season of "Game of thrones" will be released in the summer of 2017, is familiar to the audience March - April. Also, this is a long-term plan. And because of that, the Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere may not be ready up until 2019.More news: Predators even Stanley Cup Final with victory over Penguins in Game 4

Speaking to EW, Emilia Clarke said: 'When I first read this season I thought: "Damn, I gotta learn some lines!"
"But there's a limit, and delaying those final six episodes for potentially a year and a half or two years is great way to absolutely murder the momentum of whatever season 7 produces this July."
As it turns out, GoT showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss set their standards so high that the studio had to get four teams in hopes to get at least one of their ideas aired.
"I wanted to make sure fans know this is a really embryonic process".
