No, he’s not rising from the useless like Jon Snow — Sean Bean (who performed Ned) is a component of a cast reunion particular hosted by Conan O’Brien.
The cast quietly taped it earlier this 12 months in Belfast, Northern Eire, the place half of the present is filmed.
EW reviews that the particular received’t be airing on HBO. As an alternative, after the eighth and closing season is completed airing, it will likely be included as an additional in an upcoming DVD field set comprised of all eight seasons.
It hasn’t been confirmed which different long-dead characters are returning. We are able to solely hope Richard Madden (who performed Robb Stark), Jason Momoa (who performed Khal Drogo) and Natalie Dormer (who performed Margaery Tyrell) discovered the time to come back say goodbye on-screen.
However Bean is unquestionably returning, so that you received’t must re-watch Season 1 in an effort to see him dramatically say, “winter is coming,” once more.
