Here's why the final season of Game of Thrones is a tear-jerker

When it comes to the finale of Game of Thrones, Orsi said that no one was given the scripts before their table read, meaning that all the actors were reading the scripts with no idea what was coming next on the page.

(Like there could be any other kind.) HBO drama chief Francesca Orsi seemingly confirmed that Season 8 will contain multiple character deaths at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem.

The Game of Thrones spinoffs that most people are already expecting are bound to be big-budget since HBO has no intention of going small.

The final season will see cast members including Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) take on their roles for one last time.

Although showrunners have been tight-lipped about the show's end, a hint may have been dropped on where the show will go next.

She also explained that she knows how many episodes will be in the final season, but could not reveal the exact number yet, as reported by ET. The actress was the guest of the program Seth Meyers, who said she was forced to drive the whale out of the house in a nearby coffee shop when he received the script of the new episodes. Iain Glen, Ser Jorah Mormont of the globally successful TV series, says its final season will match up to expectations - but may not leave everyone happy.

She said: "Talk about being an avid fan, I obviously am of "The Good Wife", but with "Game of Thrones", I'm like the rest of the world". I thought it was rather brilliant. I don't want to know anything that's going on within his eyes, so I sent him packing. 'I didn't want to know anything that's going on like, within his eyes or anything like that.
