Mense are going to be glued to their TV screens with Season 8 of this epic series having kicked off at 3 am on Monday.
And HBO has gone all out to stop any leaks prior to the release date of this, the FINAL season of the series, featuring the six final episodes.
GoT season 8 will wrap up the story of George R R Martin’s fantasy epic since 2011.
Last time Game of Thrones aired there were a number of major leaks that emerged online, including season 7’s entire plot outline available on Reddit.
And two episodes of that season were leaked and were available on torrent and illegal streaming sites ahead of time.
The leaked episodes featured some huge moments for season 7 and for the story of the entire series.
But ahead of GoT season 8 airing HBO has put strict measures in place to prevent leaks.
Game of Thrones star Iain Glen, who plays Jorah Mormont, said they’re “absolutely paranoid” about anyone spoiling the series.
“We weren’t allowed a written word on a page. Everything was accessed through iPads, with different security you had to get through to access it,” he said, adding it “caused a problem for the actors”.
While Joe Dempsie (Gendry) explained: “The most palpable difference is just in terms of security ... in terms of plot and scripts and any information pertaining to where we might be shooting at any given time.
“During the whole course of season 7 and season 8, I have never laid eyes on a shooting schedule.
“Your filming dates are on a need to know basis. You don’t get hard copies of scripts anymore. They are all on this special app, which is triple locked.”
David Nutter, who directed three of the final GoT episodes, said they’d even filmed fake scenes.
