Being the largest TV production in the game, Game Of Thrones has always costed a pretty penny.
From international locations, to blockbuster battle scenes, to top-notch visual effects, bringing Westeros to life doesn’t come cheap!
But since the Emmy-winning fantasy series is one of the most popular shows on the air, the production has no problem getting cash from the Iron Bank (aka HBO)!
Just how much money is the premium cable network willing to burn in the name of its biggest tent pole?
According to Entertainment Weekly, the budget for the upcoming sixth season is “north of $10 million per episode.”
Sweet Mother of Dragons! That’s over $100 million for the entire season!
While this may seem like a staggering amount, HBO never had a problem shelling out the big bucks for GoT.
Earlier reports say the show’s second season cost $6 million per episode to make — which means the network will be steadily throwing more cash at the series as it’s popularity continues to grow!
This Mountain sized budget is just another reason why Season 6 of GoT will be the best one yet!
