Deadline reports that HBO will air a two-hour feature documentary, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch on May 26. It chronicles the making of the final season, and follows a week after the series finale of Game of Thrones airs on May 19.
According to HBO, the documentary directed by British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay, “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.”
Overall, the feature will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at all aspects of production, following the cast and crew as they endure extreme weather conditions on set, as well tough deadlines and more. HBO says it’s more than just a “making of” documentary. This also comes after the network revealed how the incredible prosthetics on Game of Thrones are made.
In addition to the May 26 airing, the doc will be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms. Season 8 of Games of Thrones begins on Sunday, April 14.
