We are just over a month away from the premiere of the final ever season of Game of Thrones and it’s fair to say we are hyped.
It’s been over a year since we have seen any new Game of Thrones episodes and since then there have been many theories and ideas about what the final season has in store for us.
Well, now, we have confirmation of one pretty major plot point.
The cast list from Game of Thrones season eight has been leaked, confirming a major storyline for the first episode.
The last thing we saw was the leader of the White Walkers using the zombie ice dragon to blast hole in the Wall, and the undead army was seen marching down to the Seven Kingdoms.
It seems we will have to wait a little bit longer to see where the White Walkers end up as Vladimir Furdik, who plays the Night King, is notably absent from the season eight premiere.
We will have to wait three episodes to be exact to see the Night King again. This is the episode that producers have promised will contain the biggest battle scene in television history.
“Almost the full episode will be about the battle. It will take about an hour” Furdik told Hungarian website Sorozat Wiki.

The cast list also reveals that Tormund and Lord Beric Dondarrion may have survived the destruction of the wall and both Kristofer Hivju (Tormund) and Richard Dormer (Lord Beric) are on the cast list.
Game Of Thrones is set to premiere in the UK on April 15. So at least we won’t have too much longer to wait until we learn the fate of our favourite characters.
