Get ready for some fantastic returns!
Director Miguel Sapochnik will return for the eighth-and-final season of 'Game of Thrones'. Remember he won an Emmy for his work on season 6? “The Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter” were two of the finest episodes of all time.
Next up is David Nutter — the show’s other Emmy winner for best direction. Nutter is known for six previous 'Game of Thrones' episodes, including season 5 finale, “Mother’s Mercy,” and season 3’s infamous Red Wedding episode, “The Rains of Castamere.”
The final season begins production in October. HBO has not announced if the show will return in 2018 or, quite possibly, 2019. (I think we know the answer *insert sad face*)
