Saturday Night Live returned on April 6 and gave Game of Thrones fans a hilarious skit to hold them over until the season premiere in one week while star actor Kit Harrington, aka Jon Snow, hosted the episode.
The cast of SNL introduced a variety of Game of Thrones spin-off that will have you laughing with comedic takes on cast of characters from Westeros.
Among the spin-offs are The King of Queens Landing with Jon and Gilly, No Ballers with Varys and Grey Worm, Cersei and the City, The Marvelous Mrs. Melisandre, a Daria-styled animated show about Arya Stark, and even Game of Thrones: Special Victims Unit.

Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere on Sunday, April 14, 2019, at 9:00 p.m. ET. You can watch every episode on HBO, HBO Go, and HBO Now. After waiting nearly two years for the final season of the most popular show on television, fans now have a taste of what to expect in the final episodes including the epic, episode-long battle that is expected to be the “longest consecutive action sequence in cinema history,” according to Entertainment Weekly.
And if we are to believe an early review from John Thompson of GQ, the season premiere may be the best the series has ever offered and one of the most humorous Game of Thrones episodes to air.
“This is a genuinely humorous episode,” Thompson wrote, “with a number of unexpected, laugh-out-loud moments. They begin with the very first line and continue through a series of running jokes ranging from elephants and dragons to onions and testicles.”
