How ‘Game of Thrones’ creator discusses ‘Game Of Thrones’ ending, casting options
HBO has hired a series creator to oversee the final episodes of the hit show, sources tell The Hill.
The series will premiere this summer, after a two-year hiatus, sources said.
The HBO executive will be working on the final episode, which will be directed by Peter Jackson.
HBO declined to comment on the hiring, but sources said the new hire will oversee all of the series’ final episodes.
The episode is expected to air sometime in the fall.
HBO has also renewed the contract of HBO’s showrunner Peter Jackson for another season.
The actor is currently on a world tour promoting his new film “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”
Sources said Jackson has been looking for a new project to direct for the last two years, and he is currently working on a project with Martin Scorsese, who will direct the final season.
Scorsesi is also writing the script for “Game of Throne,” which is scheduled to air on HBO sometime in 2018.
“Game Of Throne” is set in a post-apocalyptic world and features characters like Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
The final episode will premiere sometime in October, but the show’s creators and Jackson have been talking about what to do with it for years.
Sources say HBO has been talking with Jackson about how the final scene in the series would be shot, and that he has been in discussions with various people.
Jackson is currently shooting his fourth season of “Game” on location in England.
He recently wrapped filming on his final season of the HBO series “True Detective.”
The final season is expected out later this year.
