Fans of Game of Thrones should have patience because the eighth season will be late


Celebrity News: Of course, the episodes will be longer than ever

There are details of the eighth season of Game of Thrones we know. HBO President Casey Bloys had let the creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss decided the number of episodes they needed to finish the story. They decided that the seventh season would have seven episodes and that the eighth season would have only six. But that the seasons are shorter does not mean that they will be ready sooner.

The plan of the executive producers is as follows. The scripts are already written and filming is due to begin in October. Of course, it is also expected that both the shooting of the scenes and the post-production are a little longer than usual. In July, sound director Paula Fairfield anticipated that the episodes would last more than 80 minutes each, which would be practically like movies, and therefore there will be more pages to film.

And you can know why they prefer to shoot six episodes with a longer duration instead of choosing to produce a season of ten episodes as before? Surely it can be argued that this way they can develop battles or more compact situations, in the line of the battle of the bastards, the suicidal expedition of Jon Snow in Beyond the wall or the reunion of the three kings. But there are also economic reasons behind it.

When on HBO they decided not to air the series in seven seasons to maintain the maximum time possible Game of Thrones in its catalog and at the same time to leave more time to Benioff and Weiss to write the scripts and to organize the production, they had to renegotiate the contracts with the main Members of the cast. Currently, Kit Harington (Jon), Lena Headey (Cersei), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) charge $ 500,000 per chapter, regardless of duration. Therefore, they save a little money on their salaries.

No one dares to predict the premiere of the eighth season for 2018

Of course, the clarity of the plans does not mean that we will have the episodes for the summer of 2018. At the moment, neither David Bloys nor any other HBO executive has dared to forecast the premiere of the eighth season for the summer of 2018 Nor has there been any official announcement after the season-ending broadcast to reassure fans, who would rather not wait two years to see the final outcome of the epic series.

Supposedly the spectacular visual effects could delay the broadcast of episodes until 2019, joining the long list of fictions that need more than twelve months to show their new releases as Sherlock, Fargo or Westworld.
