Game of Thrones was right up there with the 2018 World Cup in the category of highly-anticipated TV. The World Cup is finally here, but fans will have to wait some more for the eighth installment of GoT.
The show is set to return sometime next year, but an official release date is still unknown. For those of you wondering why it's taking so long, one theory claims the actors are shooting multiple endings.
In any case, though, filming is nearing a close and we should have some more information soon.
"You would not want to rush this season at all," Maisie Williams, who plays fan-fav Ayra Stark. "We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities."
If there's one thing that's become synonymous with GoT, it's spoilers. As unwanted and hated as they are to most people, they will still pop up all over the internet to drive fans mad.
Twitter, however, has taken measures to protect users from spoilers as GoT has been one of the most talked about shows on the platform; and the powers that be over there know how difficult spoilers are to avoid.
Last year, they let fans in on a simple trick that would allow them to steer clear of anything concerning the HBO show. And with the upcoming season just over the horizon, with the Army of the Dead (A.K.A spoilers) poised to march among us again, we thought it useful to resurrect this too.
All you would have to do is mute hashtags, words or phrases from your timeline, and there are easy-to-follow instructions too.
Once this is done, you could safely navigate your Twitter feed without having to fear the dread of spoilers.
Of course, the filming of multiple endings would go a long way toward helping keep outcomes hidden and preventing leaks. But we can't be too sure that's going to be the case, given what Williams told Jimmy Kimmel on a recent airing of his show.
She said: “I heard this and I thought, ‘I don’t think we got the budget to shoot multiple endings.'”
So, just don't take chances, kill those hashtags!
