The unveiling coincides with the new 4K Ultra HD release of every season of the much-loved series, the first time individual seasons have been available to buy. 

While the show ended in 2019, prequel series House of the Dragon which will focus on the Targaryen family is set for release in 2022. 

Game of Thrones is the first TV show to be included in the statue trail, which has paid homage to big cinematic icons with Gene Kelly in Singing in the Rain, Laurel & Hardy and Harry Potter.
