Love it or hate it there is no denying that the Game of Thrones series was a monster hit for HBO. The show took the world by storm and kept people talking right up until the very end. Now fans will have the chance to revisit the series anytime they want when the complete series comes home.
Based on the best-selling novel series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones holds the record as the most awarded series in television history, earning a total of 132 Emmy® nominations and 47 wins to date. The megahit drama also stands as HBO’s most-viewed program ever, with the final season averaging a record-setting 44 million viewers in the U.S.
With the final season complete there was no doubt they had to go big with the home release and it looks as though they won’t disappoint. HBO will be offering a couple of variation on this collection, but the most anticipated will no doubt be the Game of Thrones: The Complete Collection. This set is packaged in a visually stunning wooden shadow box case, featuring beautiful, multi-layered panel designs by Robert Ball (the artist behind the “Beautiful Death” series) that summarize the Game of Thrones story. Each season is represented by a different layer, showcasing iconic characters and memorable moments from the show, all clambering toward the Iron Throne. The set also contains a “Hand of the King” pin clasp, which holds all nine custom plated disc sleeves.
As if that wasn’t enough the collection features tons of bonus content including Game of Thrones: Reunion Special, a two-part reunion show with cast members from the final season including Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner and more, as well as previously departed fan-favorites like Sean Bean, Jason Momoa, Mark Addy and others. Hosted by Emmy®-award winning host Conan O’Brien, the reunion was shot in front of a live audience in Belfast and includes segments of footage from both the show and behind-the-scenes, highlighting a variety of topics that are sure to captivate fans.
Additional bonus content includes all-new deleted and extended scenes, animated histories and lore pieces, fascinating behind-the-scene featurettes, audio commentaries and the documentary featured on DVD in two parts, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, by filmmaker Jeanie Finlay.
