‘Game of Thrones’ season seven to begin production this summer

MUMBAI: The seventh season of ‘Game of Thrones’ will begin shooting later this summer, HBO programming president Casey Bloys has announced.

Production of the seven-episode seventh season will be based in Northern Ireland, while additional portions will be filmed in Spain and Iceland, with debut slated for next year on HBO internationally and Star World Premiere HD in India.

Game-of-Thrones-tech“Now that winter has arrived on ‘Game of Thrones’, executive producers David Benioff and DB Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing. Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule,” said Bloys.

More details about the show have been revealed. The directors of the upcoming season will include Mark Mylod, Jeremy Podeswa, Matt Shakman and Alan Taylor. Locations for shooting in Spain will include Sevilla, Caceres, Almodovar del Rio, Santiponce, Zumaia and Bermeo.

Last week, ‘Game of Thrones’ received 23 Primetime Emmy nominations for its sixth season, the most of any nominee for the third year in a row. Those who missed the last season can catch up with it on Star World Premiere HD from Monday to Friday at 11 pm.
