Season eight of Game of Thrones is still a long way off yet. We haven’t even reached season seven yet, but that hasn’t stopped Game of Thrones mega fans trying to discover every tiny tidbit of information they can about the eighth and final season of the cult fantasy epic.
So who can we turn to for information about one of the most talked-about TV dramas of all time? David Benioff and Dan Weiss, of course. These two are the show’s primary writers, and know almost as much about the final moments of the Game of Thrones story as the original book’s writer, George R R Martin.
Thanks to Benioff and Weiss, we already know that there’s a possibility of a Game of Thrones prequel set in the years before season one begins. We also know that Jim Broadbent and Ed Sheeran are going to appear in season seven. There’s one fact about season eight however, that’s not quite as positive.
