With so many characters dispatched on a weekly basis, you’d think we’d be used to goodbyes. But we weren’t ready for this…
People talk about how we’re living in a golden age of TV – an era ushered in by stellar shows like The Sopranos (which first aired in 1999). We’ve never had it better. But no show has shined quite as brightly as Game Of Thrones.
The series has grown exponentially over the years – it’s amassed a huge, global audience; presented an enormous cast of (now) superstar actors; been filmed in locations around the world; and each episode has been backed by a budget of millions. Yet it’s never lost sight of the fundamental question underpinning the series: Who will win the game in the end? Well, we now finally have that answer…
Don’t worry, we’re not going into spoiler territory here. But take it from us, the final season of Game Of Thrones will satisfy every fan, no matter their clan persuasion. There’s unbelievable twists and turns, and even a moment when… well, you’ll have to watch it to find out. But trust us. It’s epic.
For its audience, season 8 marks the conclusion of an incredible journey with some of the greatest TV characters in history: the Starks; the Lannisters; the Targaryens. For the actors – many of whom were complete unknowns when they first started on the show – it represents the end of eight years of hard work.
What’s more, for customers who buy season 8, the awesome documentary Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch will automatically appear in their library! This stunning documentary takes fans behind the scenes like never before, shining a light on the people that made the show such a success. From artists and designers to extras and prosthetics experts, this is Game Of Thrones as you’ve never seen it before. Plus, get ready to shed a tear thanks to exclusive footage of the cast’s emotional final ever script reading.
So, prepare to strap yourself in one last time. As Cersei Lannister famously said: “When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die.” It feels like the real winner has been us all along! But what will fill the void after it has gone? Well, you could do worse than watching it all over again from season 1…
