HBO has wasted no time in launching a new series designed to get GAME OF THRONES fans through this upcoming hiatus.
THE GAME REVEALED is a seven-episode making-of series that will dive into the making of the just-ended seventh season of Game of Thrones and will be available exclusively on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.
The first episode has been made available for free on Youtube, and the 14-minute episode features looks at the camera tricks behind Arya’s face-changing transformation into Walder Frey, the Spanish landscapes that served as the backdrop for Daenerys’ home of Dragonstone, as well as interviews with episode one director Jeremy Podeswa, prosthetics designer Barrie Gower and cast members, including Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams, and guest star Ed Sheeran.
Future episodes will roll out on a weekly basis on subsequent Mondays.
Season 8 of Game of Thrones will be the final installment of the George R. R. Martin fantasy franchise, though there is no word yet on whether the season will premiere in 2018 or 2019.
