The final fight for El Hierro Throne will take place from April 14. That is the date on which the eighth and last round of chapters of the Game of Thrones, which promises to be one of the great television events of the year. What is possibly the most popular series in history (and is already the most awarded) will be dismissed then with the issuance of the six remaining episodes, which can be followed on HBO Spain and Movistar + simultaneously with its broadcast in the United States . The date has been announced by HBO just before the release of the third season of True Detective Sunday night.
The secrecy surrounding what will come in those six episodes is total. The production based on the novels of George R.R. Martin Song of ice and fire has not provided so many new images that can give clues about the plot. In the first images of the new episodes, which were included in an advance of the HBO series for 2019, the arrival of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen was seen in Winterfell and their encounter with Sansa Stark in the first face-to-face meeting between the mother of dragons and Sansa.
Although the eighth season of Game of Thrones It will be shorter than usual, the chapters will be longer than normal, and each one is expected to have a duration that exceeds the time. Although the budget of the series is not known officially, US media estimates that each chapter will be around a budget of 15 million dollars. Some scenes of these expected episodes have been recorded, again, in different locations in Spain.
This season will have the greatest battle ever rolled for television. It was recorded in Northern Ireland for 55 consecutive nights, as told by assistant director Jonathan Quinlan in a message that he later deleted. "You will not see anything like it again," he said. The director of that chapter will be Miguel Sapochnik, the person in charge of The battle of the bastards.
In addition, the universe of the series will continue alive, since HBO prepares a prequel to Game of Thrones that will be starring Naomi Watts, that will interpret "a charismatic member of the high society hiding a dark secret".
