We still have a long time to go until the final season of Game of Thrones but by the sounds of it, it will very much be worth the wait.

The show has finished up filming its biggest battle sequence to date in what was an incredible 55-night shoot. That's almost twice as long as was spent on Battle of Bastards and last season's Loot Train ambush.

The below message was posted by Game of Thrones AD Jonathan Quinlan, although it has since been removed, but the good folk at Watchers on the Wall managed to get a screen grab of it.

If that doesn't get you excited for the final season we don't what will.

Now back to the waiting game...
