Ned Stark may be gone, but he is certainly not forgotten!

HBO confirmed on Wednesday that it will be releasing a Game of Thrones reunion episode, which will include actors whose characters are long gone. Among those is Sean Bean‘s Ned Stark, who died at the end of season 1.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the special was shot in Belfast, Ireland, earlier this year and was hosted by Conan O’Brien.

But the special won’t air on the network — it will only be available as part of the complete series home video box set, which will package all eight seasons together, the outlet reports. It will be available for purchase sometime in 2019 following the series finale.

EW also reports that most of the current cast was included in the reunion. It’s also possible that Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo, may have been featured as well as he was recently seen in Belfast.

Earlier this month, the eighth and final season of the series — based on the books by George R. R. Martin — was announced to be premiering in April 2019. When HBO broke the news, the network also released a new teaser trailer.

While it doesn’t give much insight into upcoming events, it recaps the tension and conflict of years past. The dramatic finale was teased in between action-filled shots of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and others.

“Every battle. Every betrayal. Every risk. Every fight. Every sacrifice. Every death,” the accompanying tweet read. “All for the throne.”
