HBO returns to [SPOILER] to film scenes for Game of Thrones season 8?


Game of Thrones season 8 is filming in multiple places across Northern Ireland — in Moneyglass, where the Winterfell set is located; in Belfast, where the King’s Landing set stands tall; and in Magheramorne Quarry, where the production has erected a big honking green screen.

Those are the most ostentatious places where filming is happening, but there are smaller shoots going on under the radar. For example, Telltale pink ‘GoT’ signs have been spotted at Linen Mill Studios in Corbet-Banbridge. And now, Redditor The_MR_Quinn has posted n aerial photo of a production set-up near the village of Saintfield:

Game of Thrones fans may recognize this as the field where HBO filmed the Battle of the Bastards for season 6, but we shouldn’t expect anything as elaborate this time. The production also visited this area for season 7, but it filmed in the woods, not on the field itself. To be specific, it filmed scenes set in the Winterfell godswood. We can probably expect more of the same in season 8. If you click on the above photo for a close look, you can see activity among the trees, and possibly some fake snow as well.

By all accounts, Winterfell will see a lot of action in season 8, so let’s be sure to appreciate whatever quiet scenes we get in the godswood.

Thanks to the reader who let us know about this one!
