HBO’s GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH, a two-hour documentary chronicling the making of the final season, debuts one week after the series finale on Sunday, May 26 at 9 p.m. ET, only on Crave.
For a year, acclaimed British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay was given unprecedented access to the set of the hit HBO series, documenting the creation of the show’s most ambitious and complicated season. GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields, and car-parks of Northern Ireland.
GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH is an up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines, and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers. More than a “making of” documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it.

Producers are Jeanie Finlay, Rachel Hooper, and Martin Mahon. Editor is Alice Powell. Filmed by Jeanie Finlay, Mark Bushnell, Louise Liddy, Aaron Black, and Richard Jephcote. Composer is Hannah Peel.
