Game of Thrones is already one of the most, if not the most, popular TV show in modern history. But now former Game of Thrones actor (and current Justice League star) Jason Momoa claims that the show is going to go to higher levels of greatness.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Momoa recounted his recent visit to the production of Game of Thrones Season 8 in Belfast, Ireland. When he came back from his trip, he says the upcoming season of the show is “going to be the greatest thing that’s ever aired on TV.” Momoa also revealed that while he was there, he accidentally learned some major details about what’s going to happen in series’ final season:
“Just knowing how amazing this season is going to be…It’s going to be the greatest thing that’s ever aired on TV. It’s going to be unbelievable. It’s going to f— up a lot of people. And it was a bummer because I’m a huge fan and I didn’t want to know what’s going on. I was like, ‘Damn, I didn’t want to know that!”
Momoa on set?? Don't get your hopes up for the return of Khal Drogo, he says he was just visiting his friends on the set: “He’s dead! He can’t come back, it wouldn’t work,” he said.
It is very likely that Momoa's promise may deliver, HBO is spending huge amounts of money on each of the six episodes in Game of Thrones season 8, at an impressive cost of $15 million each. HBO is expected to release the season sometime in 2019.
