How Brexit affects Game of Thrones

Both economists and government leaders alike have warned that the exit will most likely affect growth prospects for Britain and make it less attractive to investors. The leave could however discourage Hollywood studios and cable networks to film in Britain, as access to European subsidies are a thing of the past now.

Popular TV show Game of Thrones is partly filmed in Northern Ireland and the series receives support from the European Regional Development Fund, at least it used to. HBO has now confirmed that no support has been provided by the fund for the past few seasons.

In a statement, the network said, “We do not anticipate that the result of the EU referendum will have any material effect on HBO producing Game of Thrones.”

Hours after the result of Britain's historic referendum came in, speculation spread like wildfire that the decision would hurt Game of Thrones, HBO's most watched series which had approximately 20 million viewers per episode last season.

The award winning show is based on A Song of Ice and Fire books, written by George RR Martin. The series tells an epic fantasy of multiple struggles for control of the Iron Throne and to rule over the Seven Kingdoms.

Rest easy Game of Thrones fans, the show is here to stay, unless George RR Martin plans to kill everyone in the very next episode. Knowing him, we won't rule it out.
