Now, with just six episodes to go of the entire series, which will make up an eighth season, talk is turning towards exactly what we'll get from the "Game of Thrones" universe on HBO when all is said and done.

It's unclear how the lineup will work exactly, but it has been confirmed that Weiss and Benioff will direct the series finale. Plus, David Nutter has been hired for Season 8, and he's known for episodes like Season 3's "The Rains of Castamere", also known as the Red Wedding episode.

This is a sharp increase from the show's first season, which reportedly cost $6 million per episode, while the recently concluded seventh season is reputed to have cost $10 million an episode. With his pension for handling the more sprawling moments of the series, odds are that when the final season's bigger battle sequences erupt (perhaps when Cersei's Golden Company of mercenaries crosses paths with our heroes) will be orchestrated under the watchful eye of Sapochnik.

It's not hard to believe that the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones is going to be the most expensive season ever.

One other interesting note - the budget in the final season of "Game of Thrones" is expected to reach $15 million per episode.

Earlier this year we were treated to the news that HBO, and series writer George R. R Martin are penning several spinoffs set in the Game of Thrones universe. The only thing we know for certain is Benioff and Weiss are directing the finale. It sure looks like Miguel Sapochnik, the most popular battle director in the show's history, is making his triumphant return to the series.

Thrones begins production on its final season in October and will continue into the spring of next year.

When Benioff and Weiss have directed episodes in the past they've switched back and forth on who gets the actual on-screen credit (since director's guild rules permit only one director can be credited for an episode of television). Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff had to plead for an extra $2 million back in Season 2 to capture the Battle of the Blackwater. Game of Thrones Season 8 is in safe hands. Both Nutter and Sapochnik received Emmys for Game of Thrones episodes they directed, and for good reason.
