Game of Thrones season 8 costing HBO $15 million per episode

Adjust Comment Print

Now, with just six episodes to go of the entire series, which will make up an eighth season, talk is turning towards exactly what we'll get from the "Game of Thrones" universe on HBO when all is said and done.

David Nutter, Miguel Sapochnik, and series creators David Benioff and D.B Weiss will direct the final six episodes of the series. But perhaps it's more likely that he will direct two, Nutter will direct two, and Benioff & Weiss will direct the final two episodes, with each taking credit on an episode. He was the visionary behind episodes like the infamous Red Wedding episode "The Rains of Castamere", as well as the finales for Season 3 and Season 5.

Sapochnik's fellow Game of Thrones Emmy victor David Nutter also returns to the Game of Thrones season 8 directorial slate later in the season. His other Season 6 episode, "The Winds of Winter", is the best-regarded finale of the show's run.

Brace yourself: for the next season of the long-awaited Game Of Thrones it is an envelope of $ 15 million, which would have been granted to each episode. Like Sapochnik, he took Season 7 off, and indeed no directors from Season 7 are returning for this final season.

Now those three teams represent all the directors for season 8. "Two hours per episode seems like it would be excessive, but it's a great show, so who knows?"

As one of the world's most successful and most-watched television shows, "Game of Thrones" has worked its way into the hearts of millions across the globe.

The music score from the Emmy award-winning HBO series Game of Thrones is finally set to be performed for us this side of the pond! That release will include audio commentaries, in-episode guides, and yet more special features. While the image is a throwback, Wagner's caption indicates he and the rest of the people featured in the image will be returning for Game of Thrones season 8.

According to Entertainment Weekly, sources say Sapochnik will helm two, possibly three of the final six episodes, but it's now unclear how directorial duties will be split.
