THE names of the directors of the final six episodes of Game of Thrones have been unveiled by HBO as the show gears up for production on its epic finale.

All of the directors are well known within the context of the series.

They are: Miguel Sapochnik, David Nutter and creators and show-runners David Benioff and DB Weiss.

According to sources cited by The Hollywood Reporter, Benioff and Weiss will direct the series finale.

Sapochnik has been responsible for some of the most impressive episodes of the series to date, including season five’s Hardhome and the back-to-back final two hours of season six, Battle of the Bastards (pictured) and The Winds of Winter.

Sapochnik was absent from the seventh season of Thrones.

Nutter, meanwhile, has six previous Game of Thrones credits to his name, including the fan favourite The Rains of Castamere, aka season three’s infamous Red Wedding episode.

Additionally, Nutter helmed the final two episodes of season five, The Dance of Dragons and Mother’s Mercy, which means he also oversaw the temporary death of Lord Commander Jon Snow (Kit Harington).
