“Game of Thrones” Season 6 director Jeremy Podeswa refused to elaborate on the fate of Jon Snow and teased that the character’s last scene was the “definition of a cliff-hanger.” Meanwhile, production for the next season is expected to begin soon in a new location in Spain.
A picture from the production set posted on LaVozdeAlmeria, shows a new structure being built on the set in Pechina in Almeria, Spain. The advanced team of the crew is said to have arrived on this location, and is building the sets. It is not clear what the crew is building at this location and the report notes that in order to maintain secrecy; the crew brought most of the material directly from Ireland.
Sources reportedly reveal that the crew is working on a circular building that is similar to a temple. Fresco Film Services is said to have been contracted for the production work in Spain. The filming locations of the next season in Spain are said to be Almeria, Gerona, Navarra, Peniscola, Santa Florentina castle in Barcelona and Zafra castle in Guadalajara.
The first two episodes of “Game of Thrones” Season 6 will be directed by Podeswa. Speaking to GoldDerby, the director revealed that working on just two episodes for the show means a commitment of about six months. He said that the show is different this time around because the story has moved beyond what has been written by George R.R. Martin in “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series, on which the TV series is based.
The plot of the next season is said to be based on the discussions that the writers have had with Martin about what happens next in the story. Martin is one of the co-executive producers of the show, and in the past, he has also written the scripts of some of the episodes.
Podeswa was asked about the fate of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) in “Game of Thrones” Season 6. This aspect of the plot has been a cliff-hanger for not only the show, but also the book series. The director refused to go into details about the future of the character, but teased that the events in the last season with regards to the character was a “huge storytelling thing.” Podeswa said that the fans should watch the show, and promised that it was going to be “great.”
