The film will also be available through HBO Now, HBO Go, HBO On Demand and its partners’ streaming platforms. British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay takes viewers behind the scenes as she embeds herself on the set of the series for its final season.

Game of Thrones: The Last Watch shows viewers the herculean effort that went into bringing the world of Westeros to life in studios, fields, and the car-parks of Northern Ireland. With unprecedented access, the film will follow the crew and cast as they deal with extreme weather, looming deadlines and a “fandom hungry for spoilers.”
Get ready for an emotional, funny and heartbreaking story of creating a world and having to say goodbye to it. Game of Thrones: The Last Watch is Finlay’s eighth feature film and is produced by series creators David Benioff, D.B, Weiss and many others.
