For everyone who loves Game of Thrones, this is a natural time to start getting a little bit emotional. After all, this weekend, the cast arrived in Northern Ireland for the official wrap party. This was a chance to celebrate production, the past almost-decade of their lives, and to start to say their proper goodbyes to the show that made so many of them stars.
There are all sorts of photos out there of various stars arriving to the celebration in Northern Ireland, which was apparently a huge occasion — just as you would expect, given how much work went into this final season. Even though there were only six episodes in the final season, filming for these installments actually first began late last year. This season included some of the most elaborate and dramatic action sequences in the history of television, in addition to offering some closure to the series’ version of the books by George R.R. Martin. There are still more books in that series to come out, but Game of Thrones has been slightly ahead of the curve there for a little while now.
Unfortunately, even in the midst of this wrap party happening, there is still no precise word as to whether or not we are going to get a premiere date announcement soon. If we had to guess, though, we’ll probably not learn much more until the end of the year — at the earliest. With filming done, the show can officially enter the post-production/editing process. It could be done as early as the winter, but HBO may wait until they find the idea time in their mind to air these episodes. After all, signs point to the show setting some significant ratings records, as it has done for a big chunk of its run on television.
