Exciting news for all the ‘Game of Thrones’ fans! Just like all of us, even HBO can’t get enough of the show.
In a treat to the show’s loyal fans, following the final season, HBO is releasing ‘Game of Thrones: The Last Watch’, a two-hour feature documentary that chronicles the making of the final season, reported E! News.
After the series finale of the show on May 19, you can still get a peek into the making of the season in the documentary, which will be aired on May 26.
The post-finale documentary will be helmed by filmmaker Jeanie Finlay, drawing on Finlay’s experiences while embedded on the set for a year.
Finlay captured “the creation of the show’s most ambitious and complicated season,” HBO said in a press release as cited by E! News.
“Game of Thrones: The Last Watch delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland,” the press release read.
The film will tell its viewers the story of the cast and crew as they battled extreme weather, tough deadlines, greatest mysteries and a fandom ravenous for inside information and spoilers.
Described as “much more than a ‘making of’ documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world—and then have to say goodbye to it,” HBO said.
Finlay’s other credits include ‘Seahorse’, ‘The Great Hip Hop Hoax’ and ‘Goth Cruise’.
