HBO Is Releasing A ‘Game Of Thrones’ Documentary To Tide Us Over After The Final Season Ends

Spring might officially be here, but for some people, winter is only beginning as we eagerly await the premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones, which will finally make its triumphant return on April 14th after a seemingly endless wait.

In my experience, there aren’t many things worse than waking up on the Monday after the Super Bowl and trying to grapple with both your hangover and the fact that (with my apologies to the AAF) you’re going to have to wait seven months before a meaningful game is going to be played again.

With that said, I’m already dreading how I’m going to feel after the finale of Game of Thrones airs in May, as I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to process the fact that it’s gone forever (which, as Prince once said, is a mighty long time).

Thankfully, the kind people at HBO have decided to do us all a solid and help out with any withdrawal symptoms you may be forced to deal with in the form of a feature-length documentary chronicling what went down behind-the-scenes while filming season eight.

According to Deadline, you’ll have a couple of weeks to process how things ultimately play out before the documentary—titled Game of Thrones: The Last Watch—sheds some light on what went into the final season.

HBO gave us a brief tease of what we can expect from the two-hour doc, saying:

“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.”

Oh god. I’m going to cry, aren’t I? I’m definitely going to cry.
