The seventh season of Game of Thrones may have only wrapped up a few days ago, but if you already find yourself missing the epic fantasy show, you’re certainly in for an awesome treat this week. HBO knows that show withdrawal is a very real issue, so their crack production team is blessing everyone with a special behind-the-scenes series that will run throughout the remainder of the year. We may have been given similar material in the past, but Game of Thrones creators are definitely upping the ante with this more in-depth and lengthier offering.

Entitled, Game Revealed, the bonus feature will come in seven parts and each will give dedicated viewers an extended look at the show’s intense and mind-blowing production process. HBO uploaded the debut episode onto YouTube earlier today, but to check out the entire series, you’ll have to subscribe to HBO Go or the network’s on-demand service.

Game Revealed‘s premiere delves into a plethora of cool things including set design, camera magic, and yes, even that infamous Ed Sheeran cameo. In its fourteen minutes, viewers learn just how some of Thrones‘ beautiful and otherworldly props were imagined, created, and integrated into the show. The talented crew also shows viewers how they utilized real world locations to enhance the world-building experience.

You can check out the entire thing below via YouTube— and in case you missed the amazing news, the forthcoming season of Game of Thrones may be full of feature-length episodes.
