The news comes on the same day it emerged Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin has seen another of his books, Nightflyers, given the greenlight by Syfy in the U.S. and Netflix internationally. The final season of "Game of Thrones" will feature veterans of the show behind the scenes.

"David Benioff and D B Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season", HBO said in a statement. They will collaborate on the six-episode, eighth and last season. Of those, 12.1 million watched the episode as it aired, making it the most-watched episode in series history.

This is huge news because typically the show airs every year during the summer, but not this time. While some episodes may be longer than usual, once again we're hearing not to expect feature-length episodes throughout the season. The 8th season of the show is the last one and it will be shorter than the previous seasons. Benioff and Weiss will also write the new season along with Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
