Kit Harington reveals details about final season of Game of Thrones

From the sounds of it, it’s going to be epic.

The man who plays Jon Snow has opened up about the next series of Game of Thrones and although we don’t know much, what we do know sounds promising.

“We know we have six episodes – we are not sure whether they will run for 70 minutes or even 90 minutes,” the actor said,  The Sun reports.

“There is so much work still to do. We haven’t put together a full episode yet as there is more filming. The length will be a network decision. But we are busy.”

It comes after the 31-year-old actor claimed back in December that it would be ‘bigger than it’s ever been’  in its eighth season.

“I don’t know how I’m going to feel sometime next year when I’ve finished,” he said. “It’s quite a sudden shift, I guess, but it feels like the right time.”

We also know that the final series will contain more CGI than has previously been seen, hinting that there will be a lot more screen times for Daenerys’ dragons.

“Here’s what I’ll tell you,” HBO programming boss Casey Bloys explained to Entertainment Weekly. “They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality. As the show has gone on, it’s gotten bigger – big battle scenes, big special effects.”
