We were all left with a myriad of questions at the end of this year's thrilling Game of Thrones finale, and it seems that the show's producers will be doing everything they can to keep the answers to those questions under wraps.

According to a report from The Morning Call, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said they intend to film multiple endings for the much-anticipated eighth and final season of the show, so that even the cast and crew will have no idea how the story will ultimately come to a close.

"I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they're going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens," said the GoT exec, while speaking at Bethlehem’s Moravian College last week. "You have to do that on a long show. Because when you're shooting something, people know. So they're going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end."

The show is no stranger to leading fans off the beaten path when it comes to stopping them from guessing any spoilers. Actor Kit Harington revealed to Jimmy Kimmel earlier this July that they filmed some decoy scenes for Season 7 to keep the true fate of Jon Snow a closely guarded secret. “We did fake some scenes," Harington told Kimmel during his appearance on the show. “We put together people in situations where we knew the paparazzi was around so they’d take photos, and that would get on the internet to fake scenes.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who stars as Jaime Lannister, previously revealed that the final six episodes of the series will start production this fall.
