Game Of Thrones Showrunners Hint That The White Walkers Might Not Be Finished

Here we are again, guys. Steel yourself for another explosive instalment of the eighth and final series of Game of Thrones later on tonight.

Here's a quick preview to get you excited about it.

Well, that's if you're one of those who can stay up until 2am to watch it. If you're not, then this will still stand you in good stead for tomorrow.

As we've seen already - or, at least, you should have - Arya Stark struck down the Night King last week and turned him into ice cubes.

That means that all eyes will now turn south to the battle between the forces that defeated the army of the dead, and Cersei Lannister and co. in King's Landing.

But should they?

In a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the showrunners of Game of Thrones - D.B. Weiss and David Benioff - gave the impression that perhaps we haven't heard the last of the Night King and his White Walkers just yet.

Kimmel asked them: "A couple of questions - I don't know if you'll be able to answer them. Are we for sure done with the White Walkers?"

The pair paused for just a second and shared a knowing glance. Benioff then replied: "We're not gonna answer that."

Hmm...

Are they just bluffing? Are they just jumping the gun on hyping up the Game of Thrones prequel that might tell us a bit more about the origins of the icy bastards? Or is there a bit more to it?

Of course, people have been saying for years that maybe Bran Stark is really the Night King. Also, after last week's episode a lot of people thought that this particular story arc wrapped up with fairly little fanfare or explanation.

Well, that is apart from the thousands of casualties suffered on both sides.

In a fantasy world with dragons and magic, surely anything is possible, right?

There is always the chance that the two showrunners are just messing with everyone's heads, and the Night King is really dead.

That means that the army containing Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow will now be heading off to take on the southern forces of the Lannisters and Euron Greyjoy.

Which, when you think about it, could be as interesting as anything with the Night King has been.
