There's a feature-length Game of Thrones documentary coming to fuel our addiction.

There’s less than a month to go until Game of Thrones is back on our screens and we’re getting very excited.

After eight years of the series, anticipation is certainly rising ahead of the fantasy drama’s April 15 return.

But while we’re incredibly excited to see what’s in store for the final six episodes of Game of Thrones, we’d be lying if we said we were okay about it ending.

Seriously, we’re not coping.


But there’s good news.

On Wednesday, HBO announced that it will release a feature-length documentary titled Game of Thrones: The Last Watch as a send-off to the long running show.

And while it’s not entirely enough to fill the void in our hearts Game of Thrones will leave, we’re sure it’ll help.

According to HBO, the two-hour documentary will air on May 26 – one week after the show’s finale.

The documentary, which was created by British documentary filmmaker Jeanie Finlay, features interview with Game of Thrones cast and crew as they filmed the intense eighth and final season.

Game of Thrones’ co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss also worked as executive producers on the documentary, meaning that they will most likely weigh in on the last season of the show in the documentary.

According to HBO, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch will “delve deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car parks of Northern Ireland”.

“Much more than a ‘making of’ documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it.”

We can’t wait.

Season eight of Game of Thrones will be available to watch on Foxtel channel FOX Showcase from Monday April 15.
