'Game Of Thrones' Finalizes Directors For Final Season

It is unknown how the episodes will be divided up, but it is believed that Benioff and Weiss will helm the series finale.

Game of Thrones fans will have the chance to hear composer Ramin Djawadi lead an orchestra and choir as they perform music from all seven seasons of the Emmy Award-winning HBO Series. He's also the guy behind the classic "The Rains of Castamere" in Season 3, and he helmed the final two episodes of Season 5, "The Dance of Dragons" and "Mother's Mercy". The other five episodes - remember this will be the shortest season yet from an episode standpoint - will be directed by two others: Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter. Sapochnik is responsible for what are arguably the series' most thrilling episodes in "Hardhome", and "Battle of the Bastards".

But not until the time is absolutely right, according to Bloys, who told the Hollywood Reporter: "The number one priority in all of this is the final season of Game of Thrones".

HBO has also hired Miguel Sapochnik for Season 8, though, and he's a director known for delivering the spectacle. The list only contains four names because with Game of Thrones' complicated production schedule it's easier to cast fewer directors and have them shoot back-to-back episodes.

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 eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" has a killer director's lineup that should get any longtime fan pumped.

Fabian Wagner (via Screen Crush) posted a photo on Instagram of him with the rest of the team behind "Battle of the Bastards". Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff had to plead for an extra $2 million back in Season 2 to capture the Battle of the Blackwater.

While the $15 million budget is a pretty large leap from HBO's $10 million budget for each episode of Game of Thrones seventh season, HBO doesn't have to worry as much.
