Game of Thrones saw a number of leaks last season, including each of the final three episodes being upload to the internet early. In fact, the entire season plot was uploaded in October even though it didn’t air until July. That’s going to change for season 8 as HBO will reportedly film multiple endings for the series finale.
According to the Morning Call, who spoke with HBO’s Casey Bloys, not even the cast members will learn the outcome until the finale episode airs:
“I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens. You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end.”
We still do not know a release date yet, but production will start this October. With each episode rumored to be feature film length, we could wind up waiting until 2019 to see the final season. Even with only six episodes, if they are all 90 minutes it would make for the same as nine 60 minute episodes.
Many shows have shot multiple endings, so this is nothing new. There are a lot of guesses out there as to what will happen. What’s yours? Let us know.
