HBO's popular fantasy show Game of Thrones breaks up next year with its eighth and last season, and the network does something special as sendoff. A game of Thrones reunion special with past and present Play of Thrones actors comes. HBO shot the special in Belfast earlier this year, and comedy / late night hosted Conan O'Brien.
However, the untitled Game of Thrones special will not air on HBO, but. EW reports that it will actually be available through a brand new home video box set of seasons 1-8. This package is set to launch sometime in 2019 after the last season is broken.
According to EW, the cast of the last game of the Thrones season was "heavily involved" with the reunion's special. In addition, Sean Bean, who played Ned Stark in Season 1, will be featured in the special. EW reports that Khal Drogo actor Jason Momoa traveled to Belfast this year, but it may only have been a personal visit as a fan of the show.
It remains to be seen if HBO will release the reunion special outside the boxing set. Keeping it exclusive to the boxing set, at least for a period, would be an understandable business flow.
Playing Thrones Season 8 is set to premiere in April 2019, and the last season will have "surprises and shocking moments."
While the Game of Thrones ends, HBO produces a spinoff that starts production in 2019. Naomi Watts is set to play one of the leaders, while more casting details have also come to light.
