Game of ThronesSeason 8’s first cast read-through is about to happen, and fans can’t hide their excitement about the news. Little details about the season finale are now emerging, and it makes things more exciting.

Recently, John Bradley, who plays the role of Sam Tarly, teased that the television show’s final six episodes will be “monumental.” Now, in a new interview with TV Guide, Liam Cunningham, who portrays Davos Seaworth, also dropped new information about the series.

The television show’s possible end of filming

“[The episodes are] definitely going to be bigger and what I hear is longer,” Liam Cunningham told TV Guide.

The 56-year-old revealed that the television show’s staff and crew are set to film until the summer. He even compared it to the previous seasons, where they only took six months to do 10 episodes. Now, it will take them 10 months to film six chapters. He then said that it is a clear indication that longer episodes are about to be made.

The making of the last six episodes

According to Winter is Coming, the television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel series’ seventh season featured two longer episodes than usual.

The penultimate episode “Beyond the Wall” ran for 70 minutes while the season finale “The Dragon and the Wolf” aired for 80 minutes. So, it is now a big question whether “Game of Thrones” Season 8 will also have lengthier chapters. As Liam Cunnigham puts it, this might be possible.

What will really transpire in the final season?

In an interview with Iain Glen, who plays the character of Jorah Mormont, he believed that "Game of Thrones" Season 8's storyline will be revealed in the coming table read. The cast members have no idea what is going to happen in the series.

"Cunningham said that even the show’s executive producers, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, will not know the length of each episode until they are done editing.

His statement about the production also opposed what the HBO programming president Casey Bloys said earlier.

The screen actor said that the filming will be done in the summer, which might be around May or June 2018, while Bloys disclosed that the production could run until August. Glen also revealed that the reason for the longer shoots is that HBO is only working with one unit production as the stars have to be in a scene together more often.

“Game of Thrones” Season 8 is expected to be out in 2019 on HBO.
