Harington is seen smiling while wearing a grey sweater with the sleeves rolled up while Turner is in a black hoodie with orange sunglasses atop her head.

The documentary, directed by Jeanie Finlay, was made with ‘unprecedented access’ to the cast and crew as they filmed the six-episode final season.

The Last Watch is described as an, ‘up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers.’

Throughout the first six seasons, the 10-episode seasons would primarily take six months to shoot, but this final season took much longer, even though it was six episodes long.   

Production started in October 2017 and wrapped nine months later in July 2018, with four of the six episodes spanning more than the usual one-hour run time.

The first episode spanned 54 minutes, with the second 58 minutes, but the middle two episodes were 82 minutes and 78 minutes, with the final two episodes spanning 80 minutes.
