Game of Thrones Revealed, a 7 part series of behind the scenes action on Game of Thrones released a video on how the Night King resurrected Viserion towards the end of the episode “Beyond The Wall“. 

The fun part is watching Night King (Vladimir Furdik) giving a signal that he is ready to resurrect Viserion. Also, it is interesting to know that David Benioff and Dan Weiss didn’t have a script for Beyond The Wall when they approached Alan Taylor to direct this episode.
