Would You Believe How Much It Costs to Make an Episode of “Game of Thrones”?

Game of thrones 6

Popular TV series Game of Thrones is regarded as one of the world’s most watched shows and now, you can refer to it as the ‘World’s most expensive show’.

The show was already considered expensive according to Hollywood standards due to the fact that since its season 2, it has reportedly cost $6 million per episode. But for season six, HBO paid over an average of $10 million per episode, according to a recent story in Entertainment Weekly.

There will be 10 episodes of the fantasy show this season, which means HBO spent at least $100 million on this year’s show.

A staggering sum indeed!

A good deal of that money likely went towards what the producers are describing as the largest and most epic battle scene that any TV show has ever attempted. The highly tactical confrontation will involve hundreds of human (not CGI) soldiers on the battlefield. It will rival the ‘Blackwater’ episode from season two, according to EW.

Season 6 of Game of Thrones returns to TV on April 24.

    I think Nollywood should make a Nigerian Game of Thrones but instead if family rivalry it will be the different tribes. Ultimately the Ngweshe should win because their name sounds awesome.
