“Game of Thrones” super-fans will have plenty to be excited about during the upcoming Christmas season, with HBO’s announcement that the complete Blu-ray series will be available to purchase on Dec. 3.

Packaged in a wooden shadow-box case featuring multi-layered panel designs by artist Robert Ball, the series’ eights season will be collected on 33 discs featuring 88 individual commentaries and 15 hours of bonus content including the “Last Watch” documentary on the making of the final season, which HBO aired a week after the final episode.

The collection will also include a reunion special hosted by Conan O’Brien, as well as the “Histories & Lore” animated extras that have been included as bonus features with the individual season collections.

Below, see a clip from the reunion special.

“Game of Thrones” is the most awarded series in TV history, earning 132 Emmy nominations and winning 47 to date.

And despite fan opinion being sharply divided on the final season, it averaged a record-setting 44 million viewers per episode, making it HBO’s most-watched program ever.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
