‘Game Of Thrones’ Filming Multiple Season 8 Endings To Prevent Spoilers

Posted 2018/05/13 625 0

Multiple endings will be filmed for the final episode of Game of Thrones to stop the storyline leaking.

In the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale, Jon Snow says, “When enough people make false promises, words stop meaning anything.” HBO is apparently taking that logic and hoping it applies to fake spoilers. The producers will shoot several different endings of the final episode, Casey Bloys, HBO’s programming president, said at a recent event.

“I know in ‘Game of Thrones,’ the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens,” Bloys said.

“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.”

Bloys also acknowledged how difficult it can be to deliver an audience-pleasing ending.

“Finales are tough,” he said.

“If you think about, ‘Six Feet Under,’ well that was a pretty good finale,” Bloys said. “But if you think about ‘Seinfeld,’ if you think about ‘The Sopranos,’ if you think about ‘Breaking Bad.’ Everybody has an opinion about how a show should end.”
