Season 8 of Game of Thrones
Waiting for the much anticipated Season 8 of Game of Thrones
Just like winter, the final season of Game of Thrones is coming! HBO’s Emmy-winning fantasy series will conclude with its upcoming eighth season, which was filmed, yet again, in Dubrovnik and the surrounding areas. How will the story end for Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and Daenerys Targaryen, among countless others? For a time, only author George R.R. Martin knew the answer but now that the production has completed on the series, several others are aware of how Game of Thrones will draw to a close.
Read on for everything we know so far about this epic show.
When will the series end?
Game of Thrones final season will begin on April 14, 2019. Shooting is complicated; being shot on different continents and with technical aspects and special effects, there is a whole other production period. But the show is complete and is set to debut as promised in April!
How will the series end?
Who will wind up on the Iron Throne? Will there even be an Iron Throne? These are the top questions heading into the final season and although cast members are bound to stay tight-lipped, it is determined that the production has filmed multiple ending in order to throw spoilers for a loop.
Beyond the final season
Even as Game of Thrones draws toward a close, there are other tales of Westeros remaining to be told. For one, author George R.R. Martin has yet to complete the A Song of Ice and Fire novel series on which the show is based. In 2018, he confirmed that the highly anticipated The Winds of Winter was still without a publishing date, though a new book, Fire and Blood, based on the history of Targaryen kings is out.
HBO is officially moving forward with a pilot for a Game of Thrones prequel series. The series will take place thousands of years before Game of Thrones and is set to focus on “The Long Night,” the period of Westeros history in which humans and White Walkers clashed for the first time. HBO has not named the show yet but they say one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend, it’s not a story we think we know.
What we do know for sure is that season eight was filmed, yet again, in Dubrovnik and the surrounding areas. Maybe the prequel will be too! If you can’t wait until April for the series to begin, why not take a little trip to Croatia and go back in time?
