Game of Thrones S8 Features Battle That Took 55 Nights to Shoot
The final season of Game of Thrones will feature a battle the likes of which TV has never seen before. Sure, there’s been the Battle of the Bastards and the Loot Train Ambush, but all of those sequences will pale in comparison to what awaits fans when Season 8 premieres in 2019.
According to Watchers on the Wall, the cast and crew just wrapped a 55 consecutive night shoot of a massive battle. That length of time more than doubles the amount of time it took to film their previous large-scale action scenes.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, assistant director Jonathan Quinlan posted a thank you note on Instagram from “The Producer Types” addressed to the “Night Dragons” for all of their hard work.
