GAME of Thrones executives are reportedly planning to film several different endings for the series finale in order to avoid leaks, HBO's programming president has revealed.

Casey Bloys, who spoke at a US college recently, told students that the show's cast would not even know how the fantasy epic ends, BBC reported.

"I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they're going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens," Bloys said. "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."

HBO has not commented on his statements.

The show has been the target of a number of leaks and hacks. In August, four people were arrested in India after an episode leaked two days before its scheduled airtime.

The popular show's seventh season was "illegally downloaded more than a billion times," Muso, a piracy tracking firm, reported.

Just prior to the premiere of season seven, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau - aka Jaime Lannister - revealed that the entire plot had already hit the internet.

"If you go online you can definitely read every plot point that's going to happen," he told The Observer.

"You can find the ending of Game of Thrones on the internet. It's there. But you wouldn't know. Of course, nobody really wants to know."

The show's eighth and final season does not have a premiere date scheduled, but sources said the show might not run until 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter .
