Coming off its most leak-filled season in its history, Game Of Thrones and its creators are hoping to do everything they can to prevent similar leaks for the final season — even going as far as filming multiple endings.
During season 7, two of the season’s biggest episodes, “The Spoils of War” and “Beyond The Wall” leaked ahead of their scheduled premiere dates, sending the Game Of Thrones world into a tizzy. And HBO seems to have had enough.
According to the Morning Call, citing a quote from HBO programming president Casey Bloys, the Game Of Thrones team will be filming multiple endings to avoid potential leaks and spoilers going forward.
“I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens. 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.”
The production of Game of Thrones eighth and final season, which will only have six episodes, begins in October.
While no official release date has been revealed, rumors suggest that the final season of GoT will not premiere until late 2018 or early 2019.
