'Game Of Thrones' Season 8 May Grace San Diego Comic-Con; Who Among The Cast Will Appear?
Game of Thrones may have come to an end, but its cast will relive the show's memories at the coming San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) in July. There are reports the show's cast will return to Hall H for the celebration of the series' record-breaking run.
Deadline reported HBO and SDCC organizers are in the final stages of discussions for the show's cast appearance at the event. Although the talks are yet to be finalized, there is a big possibility the lead stars Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, and Peter Dinklage will grace Hall H. Sophie Turner, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Maisie Williams, and Isaac Hempstead Wright may also take the stage.
Despite the news Harington checks in a wellness facility after Game of Thrones Season 8 ended, it is more likely that the actor better known as Jon Snow will be at the SDCC as he is now in closing stages of his treatment. However, it is not yet revealed if the famed television series' cast will also make an appearance at the New York Comic-Con in October. But, Wright will reportedly come to Comic-Con Africa in September.
Unfortunately, there are reports Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff, and D.B. Weiss may not appear at SDCC. But, George R.R. Martin, the main brain behind the series because of his A Song of Ice and Fire novel, may come to the event.
It may be probable for Martin to make an appearance, knowing he is also involved in HBO's planned Game of Thrones prequels, which reportedly can be a total of three to five spinoff series. He may also give fans an update about the much-awaited sixth book, The Winds of Winter.
According to Vanity Fair, if the Game of Thrones cast comes to SDCC, fans will have the last chance to see their favorite characters up close and personal. Although the series is said to have a "tragic and controversial" ending that resulted in debates, outrages, complaints, and even a petition to remake the show, it cannot be denied that it is the most-watched episode in HBO's history, breaking records.
SDCC may be the right place for the cast to discuss the Game of Thrones Season 8 finale. It is also the fans' chance to give them a round of applause for their invaluable talents when they portrayed their roles.
If Game of Thrones indeed returns to SDCC, it will be the first time since 2017 that the show will grace Hall H after being too busy for Season 8's production in 2018. It is not yet revealed what other shows would be at the event, but some fans expect Westworld will also take the stage after its absence last year.
