Don't worry! Brexit won't affect Game Of Thrones

The hit international TV show Game of Thrones, partly filmed in Northern Ireland, will not suffer due to Britain's decision to leave the European Union.

On 24 June, HBO squashed speculations that the show would lose EU funding, Variety.com reported.

"We do not anticipate that the result of the EU Referendum will have any material effect on HBO producing Game of Thrones," makers of the hit series said in a statement.

Some productions could be harmed because of disappearing tax breaks or subsidies, but people close to Game of Thrones said the series already has succeeded without support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDC) for the past few seasons.

Inspired by novelist George RR Martin's bestselling series, the HBO series narrates a gripping story of seven kingdoms and royals vying for the Iron throne. It weaves together various emotions into a bloody tale which has caught the fancy of several people across the globe.

The current sixth season of the series is currently being aired on Star World Premiere HD in India.
