The eighth and final season of “Game Of Thrones” will debut on Monday April 15 and immediately after that, on Monday May 27, the documentary on behind the scene in “Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch” will debut in Asia at the same time as the US.



“Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch” will also have a same day encore at 9pm and will be available on HBO GO via AIS Play and AIS Playbox. 

For a year, acclaimed British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay was embedded on the set of the series, the documentary chronicling the creation of the show’s most ambitious and complicated season. The documentary delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and carparks of Northern Ireland. 

Made with unprecedented access, “Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch” is an upclose and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers.

Much more than a “making of” documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it.

Finlay’s previous credits include the documentaries “Seahorse”, “Orion: The Man Who Would Be King”, “Pantomime”, “The Great Hip Hop Hoax”, “Sound It Out” and “Goth Cruise”. “Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch” is her eighth feature film.

The eighth and final season of “Game Of Thrones” will debut in Asia at the same time as the US on Monday, 15 April at 8am, with a same day encore at 9pm, exclusively on HBO. New episodes will premiere every Monday at the same time.
