“Game of Thrones” looks to be serious about avoiding spoilers.
Throughout a recent converse at his alma mater, HBO coding leader Casey Bloys said the show is taking measures avoid exposing its ending.
“I understand in ‘Game of Thrones,’ the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple editions so that nobody really know very well what happens,” Bloys said in a saving of his Moravian College or university talk released and first reported by The Day Call.
“You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re capturing something, people know,” he added. “They’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer before end.”
HBO announced this past year that the reach series would end with Season 8.
Season 7, which acquired only seven shows, concluded on August 27.
Shooting more than one closing is typical on the market in an effort to maintain the enigma.
Bloys recognized how difficult it can be to deliver an audience-pleasing concluding.
“Finales are challenging,” he said.
“If you think about, ‘Six Feet Under,’ well that was a fairly good finale,” Bloys said. “But if you think about ‘Seinfeld,’ if you believe about ‘The Sopranos,’ if you believe about ‘Breaking Bad.’ Everybody comes with an opinion about how exactly a show should end.”
A premiere day for “Game of Thrones” Season 8 has not been set. Bloys told Entertainment Weekly it might air in either 2018 or 2019, depending after executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
“They have to write the shows and find out the production program,” Bloys said.
“We’ll have a much better sense of this once they get further into the writing.”
