Diehard fans of Game of Thrones will get their one last hurrah after watching the series finale.
HBO will release a two-hour feature documentary which will follow the making of the six-episode final season. It is slated to air one week after the finale on Sunday, May, 26th.
British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay chronicled the production of season 8 dubbed as the “most ambitious” and “complicated” season.
Titled “Game of Thrones: The Last Watch,” the two-hour documentary delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland.
What’s more, fans will get an up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers.
Much more than a "making of" documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world - and then have to say goodbye to it.
The special farewell documentary will also be available for HBO NOW, HBO GO and HBO On Demand subscribers.
Arya in Season 8
In other Thrones news, star Maisie Williams dropped a new season 8 intel to EW.
According to Arya’s portrayer, the final season has “a lot of death” while also sharing that majority of the final run features similarity in terms of sequences.
“After reading the scripts I went back and watched season 1 again because so much of it refers back to that season,” Williams told the site.
“There are so many scenes that will look similar. And also I watched just to remind myself of the arc I’ve taken already. I wanted Arya to go full circle and try for some kind of normalcy like when she was younger. Basically this year it’s like she has a dual personality — there are so many emotions and memories that come flooding back when you’re with your family and the things that you fight for become very different, yet she’s also remaining on this path to try and kill Cersei and remembering her list and getting closer to that. So there’s this split with Arya between trying to be who she wants to be — getting back to the naïveté and innocence with her family — and unfinished business.”
Prequel Casting Update
The prequel pilot in development at HBO has added Marquis Rodriguez (Chicago Fire), John Simm (The Catch), Richard McCabe (Poldark), John Heffernan (Dracula) and Dixie Egerickx (Patrick Melrose) in series regular roles.
As per usual, details on their roles are still being kept under wraps.
