Aside from a number of predictions and assumptions,Game of Thrones is also surrounded by a lot of Leaks. In fact, its previous season was often hacked, and two of its episodes were leaked online.

And to keep these things from not happening again, “Game of Thrones” Season 8 is going to have “multiple endings." HBO’s programming chief Casey Bloys revealed in a speaking engagement at Pennsylvania’s Moravian College that this is their plan to rule out the hackers and spoilers.

Shooting fake scenes

“They’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really knows what happens,” Casey Bloys said (via a local newspaper The Morning Call).

HBO’s president of programming explained that the long-running television shows have to do this scheme.

When they started shooting, it can’t be helped that people will know what they are doing. And to avoid this, they plan to film multiple versions of “Game of Thrones” Season 8’s episodes, so hackers won’t see and know what will happen until the end.

According to Vulture, shooting multiple versions of a very important scene is an old method used by high-rating television shows. In fact, “Dallas” used this trick to hide who was the real person behind J.R.’s shooting.

“GoT” is no stranger to this technique even. To recall, Kit Harington earlier revealed that the series based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” previous season produced several fake scenes to deceive the paparazzi.

Battling the leaks and spoilers

“Game of Thrones” has been battling to stop hackers to leak its new episodes and storylines for years.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the television show’s executive producers were asked about the lengths they are going to take to avoid this problem from happening again.

“We don’t even want to tell you because if we do then, somebody will figure out how to circumvent the things that we’re doing,” Dan Weiss told EW.

With that, it looks like they are going to bound the series’ plotline in secrecy strictly. So, once the final season’s spoilers start leaking, it would be hard for the hackers to tell if it is real or not.

“Game of Thrones” Season 8 will start its production in October this year. It will be consisted of only six episodes and is expected to be released in either late 2018 or early 2019. Casey Bloys explained that the long wait is because they still have to write the new episodes coming and figure out the production schedule.
