Winter Is Coming, apparently not fast enough for the production schedule of a certain fantasy show.
Speaking during an interview, Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed that good weather was keeping Game of Thrones from filming now that Winter is finally here. The pair said:
“We don’t have an air date yet. We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season, ‘Winter is here’ — and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes anymore. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim, gray weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.”
It is not clear what a delay will mean for release as the show usually comes around in March or April, but with talk of the last two seasons being shortened this could mean a big change from what we have come to expect.
If only there was a huge fantasy book coming out soon to keep us busy while we wait…
