"There’s no King’s Landing, there’s no Iron Throne, there are no Targaryens,  Valyria has hardly begun to rise yet with its dragons and the great empire that it built. We’re dealing with a different and older world and hopefully, that will be part of the fun of the series."

Showrunners David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik, will direct episodes, and Benioff, Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill will write the scripts. Game of Thrones' final season will debut on April 14th.
