Some interesting production details of Game Of Thrones season 7 have been shared by people who are involved in its production. A relevant question is why is the seventh installment taking a long time to wrap up its shooting?
A report from International Business Times says that fans of Game Of Thrones season 7 have been wondering why filming is not yet complete. The installment will have a fewer number of episodes and will focus more on content.
Season 7 To Have Fewer Episodes
Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark shared some production details during her Facebook Live interview. Williams confirms that there will not be more than seven episodes in the next season.
“We only have seven episodes this time,” Williams shares. “But we are shooting for just as long, so there is just as much content. And you guys will not be disappointed.”
The 19-year-old young actress also claims that the episodes will be packed with great action scenes. The episodes might also be longer as compared to the previous installments of the show.
Williams’ statements were also echoed by her co-star Iain Glen, who plays Jorah Mormont in GOT. He unveiled in his interview that there is a delay due to the size and scale of the set pieces.
“I think the scale and size of the set pieces, the world that is being created it is just getting more and more extraordinary and they feel they need that time to shoot seven hours as opposed to ten,” Glen shares in an interview.
The outlet further claimed that Conor McGregor will be joining in season 7. He will be playing a supporting role and will be a member of Euron Greyjoy’s (Pilou Asbæk) team.
Sansa (Sophie Turner) will also be finding her voice for the first time. Yet, she might find herself in trouble, as she becomes more insecure because of the threats to her power.
Meanwhile, Moviefone unveiled that season 8 will be the final season of the show. However, David Benioff and Dan Weiss are yet to confirm whether the story will be ending soon or not.
“The only thing we are working out is how many episodes they want to do,” Casey Bloys, HBO programming boss says. “They are still figuring it out because I think they are trying to get a shape of the season.”
Till date, there is no confirmation on when Game Of Thrones season 8 will premiere.
