Final season of Game of Thrones gears up

Game of ThronesThe eighth and final series of HBO’s Game of Thrones has just begun pre-production with filming due to get underway later this year. 

The behemoth drama will this time comprise six episodes and is based at its usual studio home at Belfast’s Titanic Studios with international location filming to be confirmed. 

The show is widely recognised as having made a significant contribution to raising the profile of Northern Ireland as a competitive international filming hub. Last week it was announced that the major American TV drama Krypton from Warner Horizon would base filming at the new Belfast Harbour Studios this summer.  

Game of Thrones is also set to produce at least one successor show, with four or five different script ideas currently being worked on.
