"Game of Thrones" has etched its place as one of the most acclaimed series of all time. The show captivated its loyal audience for several seasons spanning almost a decade. Although many would argue that the ending was slightly off, this has not reduced its popularity in viewers' hearts.

After some delay due to the pandemic, Warner Bros. has finally fulfilled its plans to give fans a lasting physical taste of the thrilling series. The showrunners have brought to life a similitude of the series via a studio tour in Northern Ireland.

Among the many personalities at the event, Nathalie Emmanuel, Isaac Hempstead Wright, and Kristian Nairn were on ground to commemorate the grand opening of the new "Game of Thrones" Studio Tour at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland.

Most of the filming of the acclaimed show took place in the studio located in the cold weathered clime. As such, it is unsurprising that the showrunners chose the location as the final resting place for the remnants of the series.

"Game of Thrones" played for eight seasons on HBO until its last episode in May 2019. Although the pandemic caused some delays, the showrunners are getting ready to debut the prequel spin-off "House of the Dragon" for die-hards who could not get enough of the epic series.

"Mum's the word now, don't tell anyone. I've seen a rough cut of the first episode," Martin admitted on his website in December. "And loved it. It's dark, it's powerful, it's visceral. Just the way I like my epic fantasy."
