It’s been almost two years since Game of Thrones went off the air, putting Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) on the Iron Throne and leaving a lot of fans unhappy about the whole eighth season of the HBO drama series. Some of those fans are still asking for a complete redo of GoT’s final season. But we rather focus on another celebration: The Iron Anniversary, which marks the tenth anniversary of Games of Thrones’ debut on April 17, 2011. Coinciding with the occasion, HBO is throwing the popular dragon and politics filled show a month-long celebration.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic is definitely not over and we still have a relatively good amount of indoor time on our hands while everyone gets vaccinated, this might be the perfect time to rewatch all eight seasons of Game of Thrones again. Or just the first seven, if you’ve decided Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) throwing a fired tantrum and burning down King’s Landing and its people is something that should have never happened.

But let’s go down memory lane and analyze what made this adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s popular fantasy novels such a hit. And let’s talk about all of the Game of Thrones-related sequels and adaptations in the works.
