First Trailer For HBO's Game Of Thrones Documentary: Jon Snow Actor Weeps During Season 8 Table Read

Game of Thrones ends on May 19 with Episode 6 of Season 8, but it’ll be followed up a week later with a two-hour Game of Thrones documentary called The Last Watch. HBO has now released a trailer for the documentary, and it begins by showing the cast doing a table read for what appears to the series finale. The video includes a dramatic cut of Jon Snow actor Kit Harington becoming overwhelmed with emotion at the words on the page.

Sansa Stark actress Sophie Turner looks on with a smile, as The Hound actor Rory McCann has a wide smile on his face. As you’d expect, there’s no indication of what is going on in the context of the show to produce this response.

The documentary will shine a light on the extensive production work that went into Game of Thrones Season 8. There is also a nice moment in the trailer where showrunner D.B. Weiss embraces Daenerys actress Emilia Clarke on her final day of filming. Check out the trailer:

The Last Watch releases May 26 on HBO.

In addition to the documentary, HBO is working on multiple prequel spin-offs, one of which stars Naomi Watts and will begin filming later this year. According to author George R.R. Martin, three of the five prequel series are coming along well. Aside from the fact that the show starring Watts is set thousands of years before the events of the existing show, very little has been shared. Even less is known about the other projects.
