Fans have been waiting for the highly anticipated fifth season of Game of Thrones, which starts this Sunday. The cast and production crew have traveled to several countries to film scenes for the popular HBO show, including Northern Ireland, Iceland, Italy and Morocco. But for the new season, it’s Seville, Spain; Dubrovnik, Croatia; and Magheramorne, Northern Ireland, that will take center stage.
With all the buzz, we’d thought we’d take a look at the new season of Game of Thrones by the numbers to highlight the epic scale and resources it takes to produce this show, according to HBO.
- 5 countries
- 151 production sets
- 193 countries where the show is seen
- 240 days to film
- 166 cast members
- 1,000-plus crew members
- 5,000 extras
