‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Directors Confirmed

Just three days after the explosive season 6 finale of “Game of Thrones,” the first news about season 7 has emerged.

Four directors have signed on to helm the fantasy drama’s seventh season: Series veterans Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod and newcomer Matt Shakman will take the reins for the upcoming 2017 season, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Taylor returns to the HBO series after helming “Thor: The Dark World” and “Terminator Genisys,” the latter of which starred “Thrones” thesp Emilia Clarke. The director first entered King’s Landing for two episodes in Season 1 and four episodes in Season 2.

Podeswa and Mylod both directed episodes in Season 6. The former also scored an Emmy nomination for season 5’s “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.”

Shakman, who is perhaps best known for his work on FX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” will make his “Game of Thrones” directorial debut in Season 7.

The decrease in the number of directors slated for the upcoming season adds heat to speculations that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are planning to reduce the number of episodes in season 7. HBO has not confirmed the reduction.

Emmy-winning costume designer Michele Clapton will also return for Season 7.
