The cast of HBO’s Game of Thrones is hard at work preparing for the 8th and final season of the series.  Production is underway and, though the season may not even premiere until 2019, we are already dying to know what happens next and how it all will end.

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark on the series) recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly and teased a little bit about the upcoming season and, specifically, the series finale.  Turner told EW that the final read-through with the cast was a rollercoaster of emotions for everyone involved.  She said:

“We had the read-through a while ago and at the end of it, we were all on our feet, applauding and crying.  We had everyone there, everyone who’s had any part in this. It was amazing.”

It certainly sounds like a finale season which fans will love.  Turner continued:

“We closed the blinds and shut ourselves off from the rest of the world and had six hours in this room just reading it through and crying and laughing. We had our emotional bit and then we thought, ‘Well now we’ve got eight months. We’ve still got a while to get through!’”

Recently, Jason Momoa who played Khal Drogo on the series teased the finale season as being, “the greatest thing that’s ever aired on tv.”  One thing’s for sure, it’s certainly going to be an epic conclusion to one of the greatest shows in television history.
