The show was earlier expected to return in 2018 until Sophie Turner and Liam Cunningham hinted at the delay.
Talking about the much-anticipated season 8, Cunningham earlier said in an interview, “(The episodes are) definitely going to be bigger and what I hear is longer. We’re filming right up until the summer. When you think about it, up until last season we’d have six months to do ten episodes, so we’re [doing] way more than that for six episodes. So that obviously will translate into longer episodes.”
So, just five months away from the beginning of the end! Excited much?
