‘Game of Thrones’ season 8 will arrive eventually! Here’s everything we know

Game of Thrones might well be the most iconic television series of all time. For years, fans of the HBO show have ravenously gobbled up every rumor, every piece of news, and every tidbit of information that’s leaked out regarding the future of Westeros’ (and Essos’) most prominent denizens. With the conclusive season on its way (…eventually), fandom has just about reached a fever pitch, and we don’t expect it to subside anytime soon.

We know that some of you like to avoid spoilers and head in “blind;” if that’s the case, you really should not be here. Turn back now! If you’re on the hunt for juicy spoiler nuggets, though, keep on readin’.

Without further ado, we present a comprehensive collection of news and rumors for Game of Thrones‘ eighth and final season. Again: SPOILERS.

A covert casting

Weeks after sharing a batch of casting notices[1] for season 8, fan blog Watchers on the Wall is reporting that the role of Harry Strickland — leader of the Golden Company mercenaries — has been cast[2], with German actor Marc Rissmann tapped. Fans will remember that Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek) departed King’s Landing on Cersei’s orders in the final episode of season 7, intending to meet with the Golden Company and escort them back to Westeros, thanks to a large donation from the Iron Bank.

Those who read the books know Strickland as a portly coward who lucked into his command; we don’t have any clue how he’ll be portrayed on screen, but Rissmann is… um, neither portly[3] nor cowardly looking[4]. Watchers’ source was Rissmann’s Spotlight CV[5] and his agency, Hatch Talent[6]. Interestingly, neither page now includes any information about Game of Thrones, which is unsurprising, given the massive effort put into preventing spoilers for HBO’s current crown jewel.

Rissmann recently finished shooting for JJ Abrams’ upcoming World War II horror story Overlord for Paramount.

A survivor from the Wall?

In the finale[7] of season 7, the Night King made excellent use of his newly resurrected dragon, blasting down the easternmost segment of the Wall and allowing his undead army to march southward. Two prominent characters — Tormund Giantsbane and Beric Dondarrion — happened to be on top of the Wall as the dragon attacked, leaving us in the dark as to their whereabouts (or whether they even survived). We still have no idea about Beric, whose get-out-of-jail-free card disappeared when Thoros of Myr took an icy, permanent nap in the Beyond the Wall[8] episode, but it does look like Tormund may have survived — if some sneakily-captured photographs are any indication.

Fans noticed Kristofer Hivju, the actor who portrays Tormund, arriving in Belfast, Ireland, earlier this week (along with several other cast members, whose characters are definitely not dead yet) for a table read.

Some of the photos were quickly deleted from Instagram, but you can view the others in a tweet (see above). We don’t know what this means for Tormund — maybe all his “lines” are just white walker grunts now — but at least it provides some hope for those anticipating a Tormund-Brienne… uh… union.

Steady hands

HBO is putting the final season of its most popular series into the hands of four prominent directors with close ties to the hit show.

The episodes that will make up Game of Thrones Season 8 will be directed by David Nutter, Miguel Sapochnik, and showrunners David Benioff and D.B Weiss, according to Mashable[11]. Benioff and Weiss are expected to co-direct the series finale, but it’s unknown how many episodes — or which episodes — each director will handle. All four directors have helmed earlier episodes of the series.

Nutter has directed six episodes, including the infamous “The Rains of Castamere” episode (also known as the “Red Wedding” episode[12]) and the season 3 and season 5 finales, while Sapochnik has directed four episodes, including “Hardhome,” “The Battle of the Bastards,” and the season 6 finale. In addition to serving as the showrunners on the series, Benioff and Weiss have each directed one episode of the show, with Benioff responsible for season 3’s “Walk of Punishment,” and Weiss directing season 4’s premiere, “Two Swords.”

A mysterious ending

HBO is hoping to keep fans guessing about the conclusion of Game of Thrones[13] season 8 by filming multiple endings for the final story arc of the wildly successful show. Casey Bloys, HBO’s president of programming, revealed the news regarding the multiple endings to The Morning Call[14], and indicated that even the show’s cast members won’t know which ending will be the real one until the episode airs.

“I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens,” said Bloys. “You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end.”

Game of Thrones is far from the only show to make use of such a strategy. The popular prime-time soap opera Dallas famously filmed multiple versions of the conclusion to its “Who shot J.R.?” story arc in the 1980s, while more recent shows such as Breaking Bad and The Sopranos also filmed several different endings for their respective series-ending episodes. Given that episodes from the last few seasons of Game of Thrones and other popular television series have also been leaked early by hackers[15], there’s reason for HBO to be concerned about the details of the show’s conclusion being revealed earlier than intended.

Whether the multiple-ending strategy will actually be able to prevent story details from leaking in such a scenario remains to be seen.

Spinoff city, baby

Fortunately, the end of Game of Thrones isn’t expected to mean the end of shows set in the world of novelist George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. Multiple spinoff series[16] are in various early stages of development for HBO, although it’s uncertain how many — if any — will go into production for the network.

There’s no official premiere date for season 8 of Game of Thrones at this point. Unconfirmed reports have indicated that a premiere in late 2018 or early 2019[17] is likely, and the final season is rumored to consist of just six episodes. Each of those episodes could be a feature-length chapter in the show’s concluding story arc, though, if one particularly well-circulated rumor is to believed.

Update: We’ve added rumors of Harry Strickland’s casting.

HTC U11 Life and U11 Plus: News and rumors

HTC won plenty of new fans with the HTC U11[1], a capable smartphone with unusual squeezable bezels. But the Taiwan-based company isn’t finished yet. If rumors are to be believed, it’ll expand the U11 lineup with two new spin-offs: U11 Life and U11 Plus.

Neither are expected to be especially groundbreaking, but they’ll likely bring many of the features that make the U11 desirable to new form factors and price points. Here’s what we think we know about the U11 Life and U11 Plus so far.

Release

HTC hasn’t officially confirmed the U11 Life or U11 Plus, and there haven’t been any rumors regarding its release. But it might not be long before we know more.

In October, HTC sent invitations to a November 2 event in Taiwan. It didn’t reveal much but we wouldn’t be surprised to see at least one of the two upcoming U11 models formally announced. Pricing remains a mystery but we’re expecting the new phones to come a little under (in the U11 Life’s case) and a little over (U11 Plus) the U11’s price tag.

The U11 started at £750.

Design

The HTC U11 looks stunning from the back, thanks to the eye-catching 3D liquid glass finish. We don’t know if the U11 Life and U11 Plus will have the same color-shifting design. But if a leaked image of the U11 Life is anything to go by, there’s a definite family resemblance between it and the U11 — down to a physical home button below the screen that doubles as a fingerprint sensor.

The U11 Life’s screen, speaking of, is expected to measure 5.2-inches and have a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, according to Android Authority[2].

And it might be quite durable — it’s rumored to have a IP67 water and dust resistance rating, matching that of the HTC U11 and the Apple iPhone 7[3]. Unsurprisingly, the U11 Plus’s screen is said to be larger. It’s reportedly 5.99 inches in length with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.

The phone’s body, meanwhile, is said to have a superior IP68 water resistance rating, which means it’ll come away unscathed from water up to 5 feet deep.

Specs

The U11 Plus is shaping up to be a powerful smartphone, if the rumblings are true. According to a mid-October report in Android Authority[4], HTC’s upcoming flagship has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835[5] system-on-chip, 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and up to 128 GB internal storage. The cameras rear and front cameras are reportedly 12-megapixel and 8-megapixel (down from the HTC U11’s 16-megapixel sensor), respectively, and the battery is said to support Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0 technology.

The U11 Life might not measure up to the U11 Plus in raw power, but many of the U11’s best hardware features are reportedly present and accounted for. In early October, Twitter user LlabTooFer[6] published the U11 Life’s preliminary specifications. According to the list, HTC’s budget smartphone has a midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, depending on the model; a 2,600mAh battery; and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.

Sadly, it’s unlikely the U11’s 12-megapixel UltraPixel camera will make it to the U11 Life. Instead, the phone is said to have a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 16-megapixel front camera, the latter of which matches the camera on the U11.

If the rumors are true, the rear camera should benefit from phase detection autofocus. Both the U11 Life and U11 Plus are said to retain many of their high-end predecessor’s unique technologies, including touch-sensitive Edge Sense bezels which let you trigger app apps by squeezing the phone’s side, and noise-canceling USonic headphone technology that generate a custom audio profile based on the shape of your ear. On the software side of the equation, the HTC U11 Life and U11 Plus will reportedly ship running the latest version of Android, Android 8.0 Oreo[8], with HTC’s Sense[9] 9.0 user interface.

Update: Added U11 Plus rumors.
