The ongoing two-year gap between Game of Thrones' seventh season and its final year has been about as much fun as being Ramsay's prisoner, and yet we are in no rush to say goodbye to the show.
Sapochnik helmed both the Hardhome and Battle of the Bastards episodes, while Nutter directed the horrific Red Wedding episode, so it looks like they've got all hands on deck for the Game of Thrones final season. Every fight. Every sacrifice. And with the promotional season just around the corner, fans of the series can certainly anticipate the final round of trailers, interviews, and images sooner rather than later.
Season 8 has to address a lot of questions. Security is always of utmost importance on Game of Thrones, but Season 8 took it farther than ever before.
Readers of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire watched with bated breath, not only as the terrifying scene came to life, but as their unsuspecting friends who hadn't read the books experienced it for the first time.More news: Florida Rep. Charlie Crist backs Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker

The season will contain just six episodes, although they will reportedly be supersized - some as long as feature films.
When asked how long should viewers expect the episodes to average this season, Nutter, who was behind the camera for "The Rains of Castamere", responded, "Season 8 episodes will all I think be longer than 60 minutes". While most episodes of the hit HBO series are about an hour long, director David Nutter's comments suggest that season eight episodes will touch the hour-and-a-half mark.
It's the end of Westeros as we know it and we feel ... totally psyched.
You had done these pilots and individual projects in the meantime, but Game of Thrones is this massive show with a huge, involved story and an incredible fan base. I only hope that the filmmakers shot several alternate endings to throw off leaks, and that they'll be released on the Blu-Ray, and one of them had better be a rap battle between Jon Snow and the Night King.
