Game of Thrones ends on May 19, but it’ll be followed up a week later with a two-hour Game of Thrones documentary called The Last Watch. HBO has now released a trailer for the documentary, and it begins by showing the cast doing a table read for what appears to the series finale. The video includes a dramatic cut of Jon Snow actor Kit Harington becoming overwhelmed with emotion at the words on the page.
Sansa Stark actress Sophie Turner looks on with a smile, as The Hound actor Rory McCann has a wide smile on his face. This could be the moment Harington reads something particularly dramatic about what happens in the final episode, but we don’t know for sure.
The documentary will shine a light on the extensive production work that went into Game of Thrones Season 8. There is also a nice moment in the trailer where showrunner D.B. Weiss embraces Daenerys actress Emilia Clarke on her final day of filming. Check out the trailer:
The Last Watch releases May 26 on HBO.
In addition to the documentary, HBO is working on multiple prequel spinoffs, one of which stars Naomi Watts and will begin filming later this year. According to author George R.R. Martin, three of the five prequel series are coming along well.
