Game of Thrones” Season 8 will officially start its production on October 9. As the television show is known for keeping its storylines and other details sacredly under wraps, fans are clinging to receive some hints and glimpses from the series’ cast members.

Fortunately, Liam Cunningham, who plays the role of Davos Seaworth, teased the cast’s table read. In fact, he is the one who revealed that program based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series’ filming might end during the summer of 2018.

The official start of the show’s production

Liam Cunningham told AM to DM on Friday (via London Evening Standard) that on Sunday, October 9, and Monday, October 10, will be “Game of Thrones” Season 8’s official table-read dates.

The actor revealed that the cast members would be reunited for the first read-through. On Sunday, they will be doing the table-read for the first three episodes. The remaining chapters will be continued on Monday.

After that, the television show’s stars will undergo a couple of rehearsals. It will be then followed by the start of the filming. "My ass belongs to HBO for as long as it takes to get this done," the 56-year-old said. He even teased that he already has the six scripts of the series’ final season.

However, he joked that there was a “complicated verification process on the top-secrets scripts,” so he hasn’t had the chance to read it yet.

The possible production timeline

In an interview with TV Guide, Liam Cunnigham revealed that “Game of Thrones” Season 8 will be filming until the summer of 2018.

“[The episodes are] definitely going to be bigger and what I hear is longer," he said.

He even recalled when they were filming the television show’s previous seasons. Before, they were filming for 10 months to do 10 episodes. Now, they are going to film longer than they used to for just six episodes. “So that obviously will translate into longer episodes,” he teased.

As the final season’s shooting might end up in June to August, it will then undergo its post-production process.

As it needs heavy-editing to make it look more believable and true-to-life, it will take another couple of months to fix its graphics. So, it is not far that the epic fantasy series will be unveiled in 2019.

This, too, might be an indication that the show’s executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with two other directors Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter, are preparing to reveal a grand epic finale.
