The makers of the epic fantasy drama, Game of Thrones, are giving us more opportunities to cry over the show coming to an end. The eighth season of the popular HBO series, which will be the final installment, will start airing in April 2019. Once the last season gets over, the present and past characters will come together to treat the audience in a one-off episode.
While fans are gearing up for the last season of Game of Thrones, Sean Bean, well known for essaying the role of Ned Stark, has revealed that a special episode hosted by Conan O’Brien has been filmed, which will reunite the cast.
“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 and (O’Brien) kind of hosted the evening,” the actor told The Hollywood Reporter.
Bean, who has met his fellow cast members on “on a couple of occasions” after the death of his character, said, “It’s funny with work, you don’t really keep in touch. You do so many types of jobs in that part of the world. It’s just like whenever I see old friends or even old drama school friends, it’s just the same, we pick up where we left off last time.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, the episode was shot in Belfast, Ireland, earlier this year.
Earlier, in mid-year, Jason Momoa, who played the role of Khal Drogo on the show, shared a few pictures with Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, and other cast members. Jason Momoa may have been featured in the special episode as he was seen in Belfast.
