After over a year of speculation, we finally have a definitive date for when the final season of Game of Thrones. HBO have finally confirmed with a teaser trailer titled “#ForTheThrone” that it will begin in April 2019.
“With a 90 minute run time per episode, this is set to be the biggest season yet.”
Since season 7 ended last year, dozens of fan theories have hit the web speculating on who will be sitting on the throne when the final season concludes. Game of Thrones has been arguably one of the greatest series of all time to hit the big screen. With a budget of $15 million per episode and a 90 minute run time per episode, this is set to be the biggest season yet. The previous budget per episode was about $10 million and a run time of about an hour. But with 7 seasons all leading up to this, HBO are putting everything they have into the final season.
“An epic battle which will likely be the climax of the entire series will dwarf the Battle of the Bastards.”
Although we have read dozens of fan theories online, HBO has been very tight-lipped on what to expect. However show runners have said that an epic battle which will likely be the climax of the entire series will dwarf the Battle of the Bastards. We also no that absolutely no one will be safe, so try not to get attached to any characters because they could end up with their heads rolling across a great hall or battle field at any point. And of course there is the uprising of the dreaded White Walkers to be concerned about. To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Night King was sitting on the throne at this point.
Although seeing Game of Thrones end will be devastating for… well, the entire population of the world, we still have the spin-off series ‘The Long Night’ to look forward to. The spin-off is set to be filmed 8000 years before the events of Game of Thrones and will essentially focus on the origins of the White Walkers. However it’s not set to start filming until 2019 or 2020.
But until then we have season 7 of Game of Thrones to look forward to and we only have five an a half months to wait. Have a look at the trailer and let us know who you think will be sitting on the throne the. it all ends.
