HBO to air Game of Thrones feature length documentary


The day that Game of Thrones fans have been eagerly anticipating (and quite possibly dreading) for the better part of a decade will finally be here in a couple of weeks time: the final season.

Fans haven’t exactly been thrilled to find out after a two-year wait, the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will only consist of six episodes.

Luckily for them HBO, either as a way to compensate for the shortened season or to milk just a little more revenue from the Game of Thrones fans (possibly a combination of both), they’re a feature-length length documentary called Game of Thrones: The Last Watch to chronicle the making of the show’s final season.

HBO describes the documentary as:

"“Much more than a ‘making of’ documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it.”"

The Last Watch is set to air on May 26th, which will less than coincidentally be exactly one week after the airing of the Game of Thrones series finale.

The film will be directed by Jeanie Finlay, who boasts over a decade’s worth of documentary experience with such projects like The Great Hip-Hop Hoax, Goth Cruise and Orion: The Man Who Would be King.
