Game of Thrones is coming back to Dubrovnik this year! The globally popular HBO serial will once again use Dubrovnik as a backdrop, and this time it is for the grand finale, the eighth and final series.
According to rumours the Game of Thrones production team will roll into Dubrovnik in February and will film scenes for the last season. The creators of the show were spotted, with the whole scouting crew, back in November last year checking out new locations in the city. The Dubrovnik Times has learned from an inside source that this final filming in Dubrovnik will include many of the main stars of the serial, there is even a rumour that Jon Snow will film in Dubrovnik.
This news coincides with an official HBO statement, released yesterday, that announced the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones would hit the screens in 2019. Production of this last season started back in October and according to HBO will last until August 2018, including the February trip to Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik has been used as the location for King’s Landing since season two and it seems only logical that the finale will include Dubrovnik based scenes. As the filming will take place in the winter months in Dubrovnik the crew and cast will certainly find it easier to navigate and set up.
