New photos from Game of Thrones Season 7

Game of Thrones S7

HBO has released 15 new photos from the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, featuring many major characters.

Several teasers and promos have already been released for the highly-anticipated penultimate season of the epic saga and now, we get to see more characters in full costume. The season may be premiering a little later than usual but fans are all as excited as ever to see where the story goes in these final stages. Game of Thrones has been advancing faster since the television show has overtaken the novels, and it is already building up to a momentous conclusion. But there are still many loose threads that need to be resolved before we reach the end game.

All the living Stark siblings are accounted for (Jon Snow, Sansa, Arya, and Bran.) The Lannisters are likewise shown, with Cersei and Jaime still in King’s Landing while Tyrion stands with Daenerys Targaryen, who is preparing her campaign to reclaim the Iron Throne. Daenerys and her companions (Missandei and Grey Worm, among others) are shown sporting darker and thicker attire, appropriate for the chill of winter. Varys and Littlefinger continue to manipulate things from behind the scenes. Gilly and Samwell are busy with their studies at the library at the Citadel. Sandor Clegane is journeying in the snow. One particularly amusing photo shows Tormund Giantsbane making eyes at Brienne of Tarth. (So it seems like that ship will continue to sail!) And there’s even a photo of everyone’s favorite Northern leader, Lyanna Mormont.

Collider has confirmed that Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Conleth Hill, John Bradley, Hannah Murray, Kristofer Hivju, Gwendoline Christie, Rory McCann, Kit Harington, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Ellie Kendrick, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Aiden Gillen, Liam Cunningham, Peter Dinklage, Nathalie Emmanuel, Bella Ramsey, and Emilia Clarke will all be reprising their roles on the epic fantasy show.

Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere on July 16 on HBO.
