Game of Thrones' final season begins shooting in a matter of days

The most recent season of GAME OF THRONES finished with one of the most talked-about finales in the entire series, and fans are willing to trade all their gold, silver and children to find out how it all will end. We don’t know when the final season will air, but we can at least take solace in knowing the beginning of the end is about to start soon. Like, very very soon.

GOT actor Liam Cunningham (who plays Ser Davos Seaworth on the show) confirmed while at NYCC that he and all the other actors would kick off production on the show this Sunday with their first table read, which would continue next week:

We’re doing the first table read on Sunday for the first three episodes, second table reading on Monday, then we start rehearsals, then we start shooting.

The actor was there speaking about his new show - PHILIP K. DICK’S ELECTRIC DREAMS – on Amazon, and joked that he has received all six scripts for the show’s final episodes, but that given the far more intense amount of security around obtaining them, he hadn’t even begun to look at them.

This news that the show will be starting soon corroborates with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s quote in August saying the show’s eighth season would begin shooting in October. Though this would seem like more than enough time to get the show done by next year, the extensive amount of visual effects work that's going be required means they’ll shoot through the summer. This means that if HBO wants to keep the show’s run during the summer months, we’ll have to wait till 2019 for the last season. Ah, it burns!

I'm as anxious as anyone to see how everything set up in the latest season plays out, but that potential two-year wait is really going to be a struggle. As long as the final season is given the proper amount of work then I guess I'll know the wait is for a good cause...but my god. 

GAME OF THRONES season 8 arrives in 2018...or 2019.
