HBO is now taking every precaution possible to keep Game of ThronesSeason 8 away from hackers, spoilers, and leaks. After the massive leakage that happened in the previous season, the network now learned its lesson, so it is time for some safety protocol.

The television show’s, which is based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Game of Ice and Fire” novel series, the final season will be more secure than ever. In fact, its six episodes’ scripts will be in a tight security.

A different kind of way to read the scripts

Aside from that, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays the role of Jaime Lannister, said that “Game of Thrones” Season 8’s scripts will be given to the cast members in a much-secured way.

In an interview with the Scandinavian show “Skavlan” (via Associated Press), the 47-year-old actor revealed that the scripts would be given to the stars through “ear pieces line by line.” "We’re not even going to get the script,” he said.

He also added that the eighth installment has the tightest security.

This move comes after HBO lost a massive 1.5 terabytes of different television show’s scripts and episodes through cyber attacks in July. The hackers even demanded a big amount of money so that they won’t unveil the shows online.

“Game of Thrones” was often the victim of hackers and leaks as the fourth and sixth episodes from its previous season were revealed over the internet ahead of its premiere.

In fact, four people in India were arrested for the leak of “The Spoils of War” while HBO Spain should be blamed for the accidental release of “Beyond the Wall.”

The lengths HBO is taking to avoid leakages

To recall, HBO programming president Casey Bloys revealed their plans to avoid the leakage of “Game of Thrones” Season 8 while talking at the Moravian College in September.

“The ending, they're going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody knows what happens,” he said.

He explained that long-running television shows often use this trick. Every time that a series is filming, people happen to see what is going to happen. Thus, the series’ production is set to film multiple endings, so the hackers will never know what will really transpire.

On the other hand, executive producer Dan Weiss didn’t want to reveal their plans in shooting different endings. "We don't even want to tell,” he said (via LAD Bible).

If they ever confirm what they are going to do, he said that someone might figure out how to outwit the “things they are doing.”

The television show’s final chapter is now more bound to secrecy. The only thing known about it is that it is going to have only six episodes – the shortest compared to its predecessors. But, every episode will be longer than the previous ones. It is also expected to be out in 2019 on HBO.
