While HBO had previously leaked details of the February 8 “Day in the Life,” Entertainment Weekly took things one step further with new insight on the preview special’s actual exploration of season 5. Set for a half-hour, ‘Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life’ will walk viewers through shooting inf Belfast, Northern Ireland; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Sevilla and Osuna, Spain. Crew members will preview “the epic sets, renowned cast and global scale of Thrones, as well as the more intimate and individual challenges of our subjects, giving the audience a new perspective on one of the most elaborate productions in television history.”

Speaking of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 (already renewed for 6, with the cast signed through 7), we know of multiple returning, confirmed absent, and new characters cast, while the story will draw heavily from George R.R. Martin’s fourth and fifth novels, ‘A Feast for Crows’ and ‘A Dance with Dragons.’ HBO has also provided a list of directors, as well as insight into which literary stories may not make the transition to film.
