As the winter has come, the Great War is about to happen next in “Game of Thrones” Season 8. The television show’s final chapter is now in production as its per episode budget and directors are now revealed.

With a $15-million-budget for every episode and with the return of the filmmaker Miguel Sapochnik, fans will definitely expect a lot of actions in the final six episodes. In fact, in an interview with John Bradley, who plays the role of Sam Tarly, he teased that the concluding installment is going to be “monumental.”

The making of ‘monumental’ episodes

"We assembled a team of directors this year who have been in charge of some of our big episodes in the past,” John Bradley told Huffington Post.

Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter have been known for doing epic episodes from the previous seasons, and now they are back to handle “Game of Thrones” Season 8. With only six episodes to expect, the 29-year-old star revealed that every episode left is going to be monumental with the help of these two “high-stakes and high-octane” directors.

To recall, in the seventh season of the television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel series, the Night King (Vladimir “Furdo” Furdik) brought Viserion, Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) dragon, back to life. He then used the fire-breathing creature to blow down The Wall that will pave their way to Winterfell.

The final episode

"I think what we used to call Episode 9 in ‘Game of Thrones’ folklore,” John Bradley continued to say.

The television show’s penultimate episodes often have the “spectacular sequences” like "Blackwater," "Watchers on the Wall," and "Beyond the Wall." So, he teased that fans are about to see six “Episode 9s” in “Game of Thrones” Season 8. The English actor explained that it can be easily predicted with the coming of Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter, who directed the series’ most epic episodes.

However, the HBO’s original fantasy series’ final episode will be handled by its executive producers and creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss. With that, Bradley teased that its conclusion is definitely “in the right hands.” "They know everything about the show," he said. The two showrunners have handled everything from decisions to the building of the series.

He went on to say that Benioff and Weiss have both done an incredible job. As they deserve what they are now receiving, they also have the right to end the show that they started. “I don't think there's anybody better qualified,” he disclosed.
