Game of Thrones – 7 episodes for Series 7
The Game of Thrones juggernaut is rolling along apace as the production team assembles to shoot the seven episodes that will comprise Series 7.
No start date has been confirmed yet for principal photography, but previous runs have seen cameras rolling by late July.

HBO’s award-winning fantasy drama has been credited with almost single-handedly reviving Northern Ireland’s production profile – it makes it base at Titanic Studios Belfast and famously takes in several other world locations each season as well as using local Northern Irish backdrops including Tollymore Forest Park, County Down and Pollnagollum Cave in County Fermanagh.
Production Intelligence currently has more than 130 projects in pre-production and around 380 in development.
