Dubrovnik TV is reporting that Game of Thrones will return to the coastal Croatian city for the third year in a row. According to their sources, the filming there is slated to begin on August 13 and run until October. Thrones producer Bernadette Caulfield is in Croatia now, scouting out locations.
Winter Is Coming: No big surprise that they would be returning to Dubrovnik. It has made an excellent stand-in for King’s Landing. It also isn’t surprising that they would be scouting locations before even getting an official greenlight. They’ve been doing so since before season 1 even aired, at a time when getting another season was much, much more in doubt.
