GAME OF THRONES Showrunners Confirm Final Season Episode Count; Maisie Williams Jokes About Major Death

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss spoke at SXSW, confirming the final season episode count. Plus, Maisie Williams jokes (at least, we hope so) about a major character death...

We had already heard that the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones would likely be the shortest one yet, and sure enough, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss confirmed that season 8 would only run for 6 episodes while appearing at the SXSW festival earlier today.

The duo, who were joined by stars Maisie Williams (Arya) and Sophie Turner (Sansa), also announced some of the writers for the final batch of eps and revealed that musician Ed Sheeran will be making a cameo. Apparently, he was brought in as a surprise for Williams who is a big fan.

At one point, an attendee asked Turner why she still had blonde hair (as opposed to her character's red locks), at which point Williams chimed in, "she's dead." The panel reportedly fell awkwardly silent at this, but Benioff then seemed to confirm that the young actress was joking.

It was recently announced that season 7 of Game of Thrones will premiere on July 16th. You can check out the first teaser right HERE.
