'Game of Thrones' Season 6: Seriously, Each Episode Costs That Much To Produce?

Rachel Tsoumbakos

HBO's Game of Thrones may be considered epic for many reasons: it's large and varied main cast, the unexpected deaths, and the amazing battle scenes. But now Game of Thrones can also be known as one of the most expensive shows on TV to produce.

According to Time magazine, it has cost, on average, $10 million per Season 6 episode of Game of Thrones to produce. This is up $4 million per episode as reported by E! Online back in 2012. But the $10 million bill should be no surprise as this is how much the pilot episode of Game of Thrones also cost to produce.

"It's definitely the biggest [action sequence yet]. We've always wanted to get to a place – story-wise and budget-wise and time-wise and resource-wise – where we would be able to do a proper battle, with one army on one side, one army on another side."

Entertainment Weekly has reported that Season 6 of Game of Thrones will be the best season yet. With a budget like this, how can they go wrong? What do you think, can HBO top records in Season 6? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below.

Season 6 of HBO's Game of Thrones premieres on Sunday, April 24.
