Game of Thrones filming returns to Magheramorne Quarry



Game of Thrones has been filming for Season 8 for quite a while, and as we know, it’s close to finishing its run. You might remember that the show began filming for Season 8 and a large chunk of the filming occurred at Magheramorne Quarry, which stood in for Winterfell. It looks like the production returned to this location again. Season 8 spoilers follow, so proceed at your own risk!

Now, if you might remember, the Magheramorne Quarry set has seen a lot of action. We have seen everything here, ranging from White Walkers, to the Dothraki army, flaming swords, and corpses littered around. The set also had the biggest green screen ever used by Game of Thrones. Now since this is Winterfell, it is clear that the big battle sequence filmed here was between the Army of the Dead, and the living folk. While the filming had wrapped up at this location, the production did return there recently. A fan spotted a couple of new tents on the site:

Now, we know filming is almost done, and most major stars are finished, so it looks like the production just returned to film some of the residual scenes. This often happens if the crew misses a transition scene or something of the sort, or some minor changes are made to the filming sequences. Either way, no stars have been spotted around, so this seems like a safe assumption.
