This week, we were given the confirmation that Game of Thrones’ final and eighth season will premiere in April 2019. With only six episodes fixed in for the last season, fans wanted to know how long each one would be. Director David Nutter shared some good and exciting news that answered their question. “Season 8 episodes will all I think be longer than 60 minutes,” Nutter said. “They’ll be dancing around the bigger numbers, I know that for sure.”
Emmy award winner Nutter will be responsible for directing three episodes for season eight. Fans have not forgotten about his infamous “Red Wedding” scene that left viewers in absolute shock and dismay. It became a turning point in the show that had led to some important decisions made throughout the series.“That was one of the ultimate moments of the series as far as some major characters are concerned and I just wanted to make it good and live up to the books,” Nutter said. The episode, in a way, cemented Nutter’s legacy. “As far as season 8 compared to the Red Wedding I just have to tell you – hang onto your seat cause it’s going to be special,” Nutter said.
Nutter is a Thrones fan just like us. He wants to see it all pay off in the end. Nutter said, “I’m completely satisfied with how season 8 ends. I think that David and Dan did a tremendous job, and they took into consideration what the fans want, as well as what is right as far as storytelling is concerned. I guarantee there’s going to be lots of surprises and shocking moments, but it’s really very compelling stuff.”
With this season being the most awaited for, we are sure that there will be no shortage of suspense, surprising twists, and an ending that will for sure leave us feeling something – whether it is good or bad.
