Entertainment Weekly has just released a breakdown of directors for Game of Thrones Season 5.
The fifth season of Game of Thrones will have five directors, with each taking charge of two back to back episodes. It looks like we’re in for a batch of newcomers to the show next year, with only one familiar name on the list, David Nutter, who will be closing out the season with the last two episodes.
We’ve already learned that Michael Slovis will be at the helm of the first two episodes, but we can also welcome Mark Mylod, Jeremy Podeswa, and Miguel Sapochnik into the fold. Notably absent are Alex Graves, Neil Marshall, Michelle MacLaren, and Alik Sakharov, as well as our showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who are likely focusing on other aspects of the upcoming season.
Here is the full 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
