'Game of Thrones' holds final season premiere red carpet in NYC

"Game of Thrones" celebrated its eighth and final season premiere at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Wednesday.

The red carpet event reunited characters, like Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner), and brought a few back from the dead: Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa), Lord Eddard Stark of House Stark (Sean Bean) and Ygritte (Rose Leslie), among others.

The premiere followed a weekend of Westeros mania in Manhattan and Queens, where two Iron Throne replicas were placed by HBO.

The highly anticipated series returns to HBO April 14. Catch up with this recap of where the main characters left off last season.
