The big finale of “Game of Thrones” will be the ending of an era for fans, but it won’t be the absolute final programming event for HBO regarding the series. Just one week after the series finale, “Game of Thrones: The Last Watch” will air on HBO, directed by Jeanie Finlay. The film jumps back into the series to highlight the challenges the team faced when bringing the world of Westeros to life. Fans of “Game of Thrones” will be able to watch the special event on HBO, HBO Now, HBO Go, and HBO ON-Demand.
In the announcement, HBO called “Game of Thrones: The Last Watch 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.”
HBO had Jeanie Finlay on-set for the past year, chronicling the creation of the final season of “Game of Thrones.” Finlay’s previous credits include the documentaries “Seahorse,” “Orion: The Man Who Would Be King,” “Pantomime,” “The Great Hip Hop Hoax,” “Sound It Out“ and “Goth Cruise.”
If you need to set some reminders, “Game of Thrones: The Last Watch” will debut on HBO on May 26th. The season premiere of “Game of Thrones: Season 8” will air on April 14, 2019.
If you aren’t able to stream the premiere, make sure you get those social media filters ready, so you don’t accidentally see any spoilers from the first episode. The final season will have longer than usual episodes, but there will be fewer episodes in total during the eighth season. Fans of the long-running series will get six episodes in the final season, but there is plenty of action waiting ahead.
