Thanks to EW, we now have a full list of directors for the upcoming fifth season of Game of Thrones. Strangely, most of the names are new to the show, with only one Thrones alumnus returning – David Nutter, who previously directed “The Rains of Castamere”, and will now direct the final two episodes of Season 5.
Here’s the breakdown:
Episodes 501 and 502: Michael Slovis (episodes of AMC’s Breaking Bad, NBC’s Law & Order: SVU)
Episodes 503 and 504: Mark Mylod (episodes of Showtime’s Shameless and HBO’s Entourage)
Episodes 505 and 506: Jeremy Podeswa (episodes of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and Showtime’s The Tudors)
Episodes 507 and 508: Miguel Sapochnik (episodes of Fox’s House and Fringe)
Episodes 509 and 510: David Nutter
Game of Thrones returns in Spring 2015. We’ll provide an exact air date when we have it.
