According to Digitalspy, Game of Thrones star reveals when the final ever season will start filming
Game of Thrones fans, the end is seriously nigh.
SER DAVOS ACTOR LIAM CUNNINGHAM HAS LET SLIP..
Ser Davos actor Liam Cunningham has let slip when the final season will start filming – and it’s not far off.
Shooting is ongoing on the seventh season and will wrap in February – with Cunningham telling Dubai One that work will begin on the last ever episodes seven months later.
“I think [the next season’s] going to be extraordinary,” he enthused. “We’re still filming – we don’t finish until the end of next month.
THAT’s SEVEN EPISODES AND THEN WE START AGAIN
“That’s seven episodes and then we start again in September and there’s a final six.”
So now we know – the end begins in September – and it’s another confirmation that the final GoT season will span just six episodes.
But don’t fret: while the next two seasons will be shorter, the total time spent filming (roughly five months) will be the same as for a 10-episode run.
According to Iain Glen, who plays Jorah Mormont, that means that the “scale and size of the set pieces” will be more epic and “more extraordinary” than ever before.
Game of Thrones has traditionally returned in early April, but the next season has been filmed later in the year – to accommodate a winter shoot – and won’t launch till summer 2017.
Once the epic fantasy saga does draw to a close, HBO may launch a spin-off – with network chiefs confirming that they’re weighing up “possibilities” for a new show.
