Little details about Game of ThronesSeason 8 are now emerging online. In fact, Iain Glen, who plays the role of Jorah Mormont, talked about some information regarding the series' pre-production stage at the Stockholm comic-con panel [VIDEO].

The 56-year-old revealed that the television show’s full cast is going to be reunited for the new episodes' read-through on October 9. And as he still has no idea of what is going to happen, he is very thankful that his character is still alive.

Longer filming for a shorter season

Iain Glen admitted that he is very happy to be alive and be part of the Great War in the coming “Game of Thrones” Season 8.

However, he still has no clue if he is going to survive or die a heroic death. In an interview, revealed by Watchers on the Wall, the “Jack Taylor” star also addressed the lengthier filming of the eighth season’s six-episode arc. There are rumors that the television show’s shooting will take 10 months to finish, which is twice longer than its predecessors.

Glen explained that series’ main stars are set to be in the same scene at the same time, so their schedules all have to be set and met. “We’re all starting to occupy the same territory,” he said. A lot of cast members have to be in the same plot, so it is now impossible to shoot multiple scenes in a row. He then explained that the new installment’s filming will take much longer because they can only use one unit as they are all doing the same sequences.

The television show’s production

The television show’s executive producers and creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss talked about “Game of Thrones” Season 8’s production length. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the showrunners indicated that they plan to spend a year and a half finishing up the series’ final season. There is a big possibility that it will return to the small screen in 2019. Aside from the longer filming, the series also has to undergo an extensive amount of pre-production processing.

“Westworld” Season 2 is said to be returning to HBO in 2018, although its official release date is not yet known. It looks like fans have to wait a little longer before they finally see what will happen to Westeros. Also, it will still take two years before the answers to their questions about Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) incestuous relationship will be revealed, and, of course, Jaime Lannister’s (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) fate, now that he has left his sister/lover Cersei Lannister (Emilia Headey).
