‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Shooting in Spain Again, But As Which Fictional Location?
Casting details of Game of Thrones Season 6 have already made their way online before the July production start, and with it locations have begun to eke out as well. First on the map, Game of Thrones will return to shoot in several Spain locations, but will the country again double for the Kingdom of Dorne?
Per Entertainment Weekly, Game of Thrones Season 6 will film in the Spain cities of Girona and Peñíscola, among others. That said, where Season 5 shot in Seville and Osuna (The Royal Alcazar of Seville doubling for the Water Gardens, and the Plaza de Toros doubling for the Mereen fighting pits we’ll see this Sunday), it remains to be seen if Spain will serve to represent Dorne.
Thus far of Game of Thrones Season 6, we know that George R.R. Martin will again forgo writing an episode in lieu of finishing sixth novel The Winds of Winter, while casting calls for both book and other Season 6 characters have already gone out. Given that Game of Thrones Season 5 has made relatively little of its Dornish characters thus far, it remains unclear if the Kingdom will play any significant role in Season 6.
We’ve still two hours to go after the epic carnage of “Hardhome,” but what new Spain locations might Game of Thrones Season 6 seek out in 2016? Could the Kingdom of Dorne be expanding?
