GAME OF THRONES: SEASON SEVEN || Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Daenerys “Mother Of Dragons” Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) take their seats on their respected thrones as they get ready to wage war for power over Westeros. The teaser for the new season shows the three walking down halls, passing candles, all while “Sit Down” by James plays as a theme. Once Cersei sits, she exhales a breath that reveals the frosty air, leading to a pull out of the Night King’s deep blue eye, the true threat for the remaining few of Westeros.
At the end of Season Six, Jon Snow had officially become King in the North, over his sister Sansa (Sophie Turner), Daenerys finally had an Army to sail to Westeros with, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) in her company, and Cersei destroyed the Sept of Baelor by wildfire, killing the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), taking the Iron Thrown at King’s Landing for herself as her returning brother/lover Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) watches on.
Unlike previous seasons, with were comprised of ten episodes, Season Seven will only be seven episodes, leading into the eighth and final season, which will likely only be six episodes, with a tentative premiere date of 2018. This seventh season yet again comes prior to the release of author George R. R. Martin’s upcoming sixth and seventh novels The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. On January 10, 2017, Martin announced on his blog in a response to a comment that he believed that The Winds of Winter will be released “this year”, referring to 2017. However, he also noted that he believed the same thing would occur the previous year.
