For those anxiously awaiting the eighth and final season of Games of Thrones, but can’t sit still until 2019, the digital download and Blu-ray and DVD releases of Season 7 should hold you over.

Starting Dec. 12, the season that just ended last month will be available in a box set. But it’s not just a chance to replay scenes of Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon children. Audio commentaries will accompany every episode with the cast and production crew.

Then there’s never-before-seen content from a two-part behind-the-scenes featurette. The bonus shows the work from the show’s art department to create sets, like Casterly Rock and the Dragonpit.

Another additional Blu-ray and DVD feature is an animated history of the Seven Kingdoms narrated by Littlefinger, Sansa, Jaime Lannister, and others. The new story written by Dave Hill paints a bigger picture about the world in Game of Thrones. A clip of the story is above.

Of course a DVD pack wouldn’t be complete without behind-the-scenes moments with the cast and crew showing how your Sunday night obsession gets made.

The Blu-ray bonus feature includes seven animated clips about the history and background of Season 7 storylines and locations.

On Sept. 25, the Season 7 digital download will be available with its own bonuses. The download will include a “Creating the North and Beyond” feature with a behind-the-scenes look at Jon Snow’s journey.

That’s 437 minutes of Game of Thrones for you — not including all the extra features. So you’re set. If not, there’s always Reddit to tame your thirst.
