The cast of “Game of Thrones” is set to start filming the final season of the hit HBO series in October, according to actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

“You get the scripts a month before we start shooting, or six weeks, and then you know what’s going to happen that season,” the actor who plays Jaime Lannister told Collider. “But, I don’t know what’s going to happen next season. We go back in October, so maybe in the next few weeks, we’ll get the scripts and I’ll find out. I’m very curious.”

According to the publication, “Game of Thrones” had a regular cycle of filming from the end of July to December, although the final two seasons saw a few changes. Not only are they only comprised of seven and six episodes instead of the traditional 10, but they had to push back filming to the end of August because, well, winter is finally here.

For example, the current seventh season of “Game of Thrones” was pushed from a start date in April, when previous seasons of the show have started, to July in order to film scenes in winter.

During the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour last month, HBO programming head Casey Bloys said that all six scripts for the final season of “Game of Thrones” are now in, but the network still hasn’t decided whether it will air in 2018 or 2019.

“Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.

HBO had no comment regarding Waldau’s claims.
