If you weren't sure how you'd survive the wait until "Game of Thrones" returns in April, here's some good news - you won't have to.

According to Entertainment Weekly, "Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life" will be a half-hour documentary covering a single day of production on the show's fifth season, on set in three different countries (Northern Ireland, Croatia and Spain). The special will reportedly spotlight "the epic sets, renowned cast and global scale of 'Thrones,' as well as the more intimate and individual challenges of our subjects, giving the audience a new perspective on one of the most elaborate productions in television history."

"A Day in the Life" debuts on Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Before that, you can refresh your "Game of Thrones" memory by catching the show on IMAX screens starting Jan. 29 (participating theaters and additional details can be found here).

The fifth season of "Game of Thrones" premieres April 12 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
