The political aftermath of Brexit where the citizens chose to move out of the European Union and let the United Kingdom stand alone separately made lots may fan and followers of Game Of Thrones a bit nervous about what will happen now regarding the further season production. As this whole issue might just affect their ongoing production of Season 7 and further the finale season 8, because a part of the show is based majorly in Northern Island. The location sites and the studio (Titanic Studios) in Belfast are part of major NI locality for Game Of Thrones from the very beginning of the series.
But the latest reports providing us details on the funding and the incentives the show receives is from NI Screens, different UK-wide programmes and has got no money coming out from the European Unions. Even though there the show was supposed to be funded by the European Regional Development Fund, has been stopped from quite sometimes now. The present status of the show is that it has been preparing for the forthcoming season 7 and has already begun with its pre-production, hence season 7 cannot be affected at any cost but if any such situation supposedly arrives, it’s going to be Season 8 that might hit with this crisis.
But HBO has finally revealed their side of clarification by providing an official statement that speaks for the shows better run though out the end season:
HBO: We do not anticipate that the result of the EU Referendum will have any material effect on HBO producing Game Of Thrones.
NI Screen: This statement is to confirm that Northern Ireland Screen’s production funding comes from the Northern Ireland Executive through Invest NI and does not use monies provided from European funded programmes. We look forward to business as usual.
Still with these two greater bodies coming apart a lot of change will be observed, only for now Game Of Thrones is not affected and maybe we shouldn’t be bothering about it anymore and concentrate more onto tomorrow’s finale episode of Game Of Thrones S06E10 The Winds Of Winter.
