Game of Thrones to return to Northern Ireland this autumn to film the prequel

Published

Jon Snow finally met Drogon, and the fans lost it!

As we move closer to the new season of Game of Thrones, juicy details are dropped along with interviews and more footages and teasers. But ahead of Season 8, we’ve also started getting some more details about the prequel series whose pilot has been scheduled to be filmed in February. And, according to the latest update it will be shot in Northern Ireland – the prime filming location for the main series yet again.

The team including the cast and crew will be filming in autumn in Northern Ireland after location shoots in the Canary Islands. According to the Belfast Telegraph,

“Staff at the Paint Hall studios in Belfast – the main set location for Game of Thrones – have been told to prepare to fly out to Spain to work on the new spin-off.”

According to an industry source:

“We will be shooting on location in Tenerife and Las Palmas throughout the spring. After that, we will be coming back to Belfast for production work in the Paint Hall.

“It’s great news for everyone involved in the film industry in Northern Ireland – if the Long Night is even half as successful as Game of Thrones, it will pump millions of pounds into the local economy.”

That’s some news – at least HBO won’t let all the fans down even after the main series ends. The prequel begins shooting in February and two of the main cast members Naomi watts and Josh Whitehouse have been cast. And, more and more details will soon emerge with just a month left in the pilot to be filmed.
