A great video for fans, the video goes into the making of the first episode of Season 8 with interviews from most everyone involved including the actors, writers, directors. This number accounts for all of HBO's platforms, including on-air viewings, HBOGO and HBO Now.

The end of the penultimate season of Game of Thrones was the best the HBO blockbuster had ever done with viewers, but last night's final season opener just put that record on ice. The 17.4 million beats the previous series high that came in the Season 7 finale, which hit 16.9 million viewers.

According to HBO, 11.8 million viewers tuned in to the show's on-air broadcast of its season 8 premiere. Though we later found out its relevance to the White Walkers, a similar design popped up again in the Season 8 premiere around the wight Ned Umber.


The episode was live for some users for hours on DirecTV Now, before it was taken down. Tweeters beware! Spoilers are coming!

As epic as Game of Thrones scenes may look on screen, filming them can be decidedly less glamorous.

HBO has unveiled more footage from the final season of Game of Thrones.


Harington said in a behind-the-scenes video that filming the scene was "not easy", and he nearly sustained a terrifying injury to his nether regions. The Stark boy survives, but he is paralysed.

As we enter the map of Westeros, we begin with a swooping entrance through the hole left in The Wall by Viserion and the Night King in a desolate and snowcapped landscape. How do you think you would fair if the Mother of Dragons ordered you to glide through the air atop one of her toothy children? Let us know in the comments down below!
