Big Budget: The Season Cost As Much As Some Major Film Blockbusters
The Cost: The budget for Season 8 was on par with many major film franchises and superhero movies in Hollywood, with each episode costing around $15 million, according to top production designer Deborah Riley. The $90 million combined production budget, plus the marketing costs and other expenses likely pushed the total to over $100 million for the season.
By the Numbers: The major Battle of Winterfell episode was one of the biggest battle scenes ever filmed for TV or movies. One of the extras in the scene described the mayhem for the battle, saying that the fight was meant to be between “120,000 wights and 18,000 living people.”
