Bloys said the episodes in season 8 will not be 2-hours long, according to his knowledge. He also shared that he thinks the final season trailer will launch in 2018, but he has not been told specifically when it will.
In terms of the possibility of any more Game of Thrones prequels besides the one announced that is being written by Jane Goldman and George R.R. Martin, Bloys confirmed that is a no for right now.
“I don’t anticipate any movement on any other prequels until we [see what this one is],” Bloys said. He also said they’re hoping to shoot in the first quarter of 2019, which debunks the rumor that shooting was going to begin in Oct. 2018 in Belfast.
