The directors for the eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones have been announced. Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss will co-direct the final episode of the series. The two have co-directed episodes previously, but due to director's guild rules only one director can be credited.

Alongside the showrunners, Miguel Sapochnik is back. He's directed four episodes of the show so far: season 5's The Gift and Hardhome and season 6's Battle Of The Bastards and The Winds Of Winter. Sapochnik took off the seventh season to work on Netflix's upcoming sci-fi drama Altered Carbon.

Last, but certainly not least, is the return of David Nutter, who has directed six episodes of Game Of Thrones: season 2's The Old Gods And The New and A Man Without Honor, season 3's The Rains Of Castamere and Mhysa, and season 5's The Dance Of Dragons and Mother's Mercy. Nutter's credits range from The X-Files to ER to The Flash.

Season 3's The Rains Of Castamere was home to the infamous Red Wedding.

The final season, consisting of six episodes, is expected to premiere in late 2018/early 2019.
