Following the epic--and polarizing--conclusion to its eight-season run, Game of Thrones has remained prominent in popular discussion, with fans taking time to pick apart its final season and review the series as a whole. To culminate all of the enthusiasm surrounding the ending, the series will be reaching a milestone: one final appearance at San Diego Comic-Con.

According to CBR, Thrones will appear at Comic-Con at a Hall H presentation--the space typically reserved for major studios to host tentpole panels and make major announcements. With the series’ conclusion, it is likely that the panel will serve as a retrospective on the show as a whole, though it is possible that information will be revealed about the announced Game of Thrones spinoff series.

Though no cast members have been confirmed to be attending, it is reportedly expected that Kit Harington and George R.R. Martin will likely be there, while showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will not.

Other major studios will also be making Hall H presentations--though, notably, DC Entertainment owners Warner Bros. will not be holding a panel, leaving space for Game of Thrones to host an attention-grabbing event. This enthusiasm will likely be further ballooned by the fact that this panel marks Thrones’ first San Diego Comic-Con appearance since 2017.

As for us, we’re excited to see what comes out of the panel. Whether it’s a new announcement or just a time to reflect on the series, we’re glad to take whatever content the creators can offer.
