HBO has officially released a new Game of Thrones Season 7 teaser trailer, featuring Jon Snow, Daenerys, and Cersei Lannister all approaching and sitting on each of their thrones. Check out the new teaser below, and prepare for new episodes starting on July 16, 2017!
At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) is now Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent.
Game of Thrones typically premiered in April after filming during the second half of the previous year. Season 7 was delayed because the storyline required a longer period of shooting in winter conditions.
This is the beginning of the end for Game of Thrones whose creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had revealed that the Emmy-winning series will end with Seasons 7 and 8. While Season 7’s episode count was set at seven last summer, before it went into production, the length of Game of Thrones final installment had been in flux. Benioff and Weiss had said that they were considering a 6-episode final season.
Game of Thrones is executive produced by Benioff & Weiss as well as Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield. George R.R. Martin, on whose books the series is based, is a co-executive producer.
