Much-loved fantasy drama television show, Game of Thrones will be hosting a reunion for the cast members that have been a part of the eight-season long journey! But here's the deal breaker, the reunion will not be aired on HBO!
Season 8 will premiere in April 2019!
While you won't be able to watch it for free on your television sets, you can access it if you have a couple of bucks to spend because the reunion will debut as part of a complete series box set, compiling all eight seasons’ blockbuster show. The collectible set will be launched after the final season of the show airs.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sean Bean, who played the role of Ned Stark in the series, was the first cast member to reveal some information about the reunion. "It was for season eight, the last one. So they decided to get all the characters together for a bit for this big show in Belfast," he said.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the episode was shot in Belfast, Ireland, earlier this year and was hosted by Conan O’Brien. Actor Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo, may have been featured as well as he was seen in Belfast. Earlier this month, putting an end to speculations, makers of GOT announced that the season finale will premiere in the month of April next year.
Game of Thrones has garnered widespread popularity since the first season, and has received 46 Primetime Emmy Awards, including 'Outstanding Drama Series' in 2015, 2016, and 2018.
While season 8 will be the finale, author of the fantasy novel series George R.R. Martin, recently revealed that he is working on the sixth book of the series.
