The final season of Game of Thrones will also prove to be one of the most expensive television productions to date.
Variety reported that the final six episodes of the HBO television show will be $15 million per episode. While this has not been confirmed by HBO, the number is definitely a leap in comparison to the first season, which was around $6 million per episode.
While the number seems daunting, Variety reports that “the $15 million-plus price tag is due in part to a shooting schedule that more resembles that of a feature film than an episodic series”. The show has been reported to film in about four continents with multiple production units.
