The team behind Game of Thrones is taking their time filming the show's 6-episode eight and final season.
Star Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos, spoke with EW to give fans an update about the show's production timeline for season 8. And it sounds like we're really gonna have to wait until 2019 to see the final product - which will feature longer episodes than the previous installments.
The actor said:
[The episodes are] definitely going to be bigger and what I hear is longer.
We’re filming right up until the summer. When you think about it, up until last season we’d have six months to do ten episodes, so we’re [doing] way more than that for six episodes. So that obviously will translate into longer episodes.
In other Thrones news, Buzzfeed reported that Tormund might have survived season 7's finale cliffhanger. The news comes after actor Kristofer Hivju and the cast were spotted in Belfast, where the show is currently in production.
