Well here’s some news that oughta keep you going until April: HBO has confirmed the “Game of Thrones” special rumored to have shot in Belfast earlier this year with former and current cast members — including Sean Bean a.k.a. Ned Stark — is for sure a reality and will be made available to fans in 2019.

Just not on the premium cable network.

The reunion special — which was hosted by Conan O’Brien — will instead be a “DVD initiative,”  included in a complete series box set that will be comprised of Season 1-8, a spokesperson for HBO tells TheWrap. That special collection will be released sometime in 2019, after the final season airs.

No word on who exactly is going to appear in the special, other than Bean, who actually spilled the beans about the reunion special himself during an interview last month.

Entertainment Weekly first reported confirmation of the “Game of Thrones” reunion special and that it will be included in the special home video box set.

The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” will premiere in April 2019 on HBO.
