Fans are eager to know what’s in store for the hit HBO drama, and are already looking for the Game of Thrones season 8 scripts. HBO’s president of programming, Casey Bloys, hinted at the schedule and length of each GoT season 8 episode. Though filming has yet to start, if all goes as planned, there is a likelihood that the release date will be sometime in the later part of 2018.

The hysteria surrounding Game of Thrones shows no sign of slowing. With the GoT season 7 finale airing on August 27, 2017, fans are already speculating about season 8. Fans want to know the Game of Thrones season 8 release date and are hoping that the Game of Thrones season 8 script is floating around online. HBO is trying its best to keep the details of season 8 under wraps, but some information was given out to whet the appetite of the millions of fans who are clamoring for details. We have some details about GoT season 8 so watch out for some Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers.

Feature Length Episodes!

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, confirmed that filming for the last season will likely begin in October 2017, “I don’t know what’s going to happen next season. We go back in October, so maybe in the next few weeks, we’ll get the scripts, and I’ll find out. I’m very curious.” HBO’s president of programming, Casey Bloys, hinted that GoT season 8 might be the shortest yet with only six episodes. However, each episode might be feature length meaning we could get two solid hours each week, “I imagine they’ll be longer but…I’m not sure [how long]. Two hours per episode seems like it would be excessive, but it’s a great show, so who knows?”

Bloys also confirmed that all six scripts are complete explaining, “It’s a big season. So they’re trying to get a sense of how long they’re going to take to film this.” Based on this schedule some fans are expecting season 8 to air in August 2018. However, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bloys hinted that season 8 might be delayed until 2019. According to latest reports, since the scripts are complete, Game of Thrones season 8 will be able to keep up with its schedule and will air in the latter part of 2018.

Authenticity of Leaked Scripts Questionable

There are several websites claiming to have the scripts of all six Game of Thrones season 8 episodes, but this cannot be confirmed. Though there is no information about a Game of Thrones season 8 leak, several scripts are doing the rounds on the Internet claiming to be the real deal. There are many Game of Thrones season 8 theories concocted by fans so whatever you hear might not be true. According to Bloys, “The final season is going to be it’s own event. It’s going to be a big deal for us and the fans.” Though there might be a full year until GoT season 8 airs, fans need not worry. The final season is bound to be amazing, and will definitely be worth the wait!
