Game Of Thrones Season 8 Will Be Directed By ‘Red Wedding’ & ‘Battle Of The Bastards’ Creators

If you weren’t excited enough for the final season of Game Of Thrones, news has recently emerged that the directors of our favorite episodes will return, as well as a surprise duo.

If you loved ‘The Battle of the Bastards’, ‘Hardhome’, ‘The Winds of Winter’ and ‘The Reins of Castamere’ then you’re in luck!


When discussing the greatest Game Of Thrones episodes, the two frontrunners, especially for ratings, are the ‘Battle of the Bastards’ and the infamous ‘Red Wedding’ creators.

These two directors will return for the final season. Episodes 1, 2, and 4 will be directed by The Rains of Castamere (Red Wedding) director David Nutter. As well as him, episodes 3 and 5 are in the hands of Miguel Sapochnik, who directed the Battle of the Bastards – probably the greatest TV battle ever.

It’s not only BOTB that Miguel Sapochnik directed in the show, but also the insane White Walker battle in Hardhome & the season 6 finale ‘The Winds of Winter’ which is widely regarded as being one of the greatest episodes.
