Iain Glen, who portrays Ser Jorah Mormont in HBO’s Game of Thrones, is tipping his hand about the filming of the show’s seventh season – because the world is getting “more and more extraordinary,” they want to offer a matching level of quality.

Iain Glen Discusses The Filming Of Game Of Thrones Season 7

In an interview with Radio Times, Glen admitted the team behind the hit television program is taking a perfectionistic attitude towards the next seven episodes:

“They are taking the length of time it takes to shoot ten episodes to shoot just seven this year and six next year. There are fifteen more hours left in Thrones as we understand it, but that may change, but that’s as far as we know.”

Glen adds that the detail in the fictional world they’re bringing to life warrants this exhaustive filming. Glen, however, is unaware if his character will survive Westeros’ ordeal.

Filming for the seventh season should wrap up next month. Glen’s fans will probably get to watch the seven-part epic this summer. Furthermore, Game of Thrones‘ final season is slated to air in 2018.

David Benioff and Daniel Weiss, the showrunners behind HBO’s hit, had previously stated that there would be 13 to 15 episodes remaining. Now, it appears like it’ll be closer to 15.

On Game of Thrones’ forthcoming finale, Benioff had this to say:

“We’ve known the end for quite some time and we’re hurtling towards it… Daenerys is finally coming back to Westeros; Jon Snow is king of the North and Cersei is sitting on the Iron Throne. And we know the Night King is up there, waiting for all of them. The pieces are on the board now. Some of the pieces have been removed from the board and we are heading toward the end game.”
