Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister all take a long walk, but only one sits on the Iron Throne in the first promo for HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Season 7.
The promo shows all three individuals making their way towards the coveted throne, with Lena Headey’s Cersei ultimately taking a seat on it. It ends with Cersei blowing a cold frigid frost out of her lips, steam which transitions to the steel blue eyes of a white walker as a version of English rock band James’ “Sit Down” plays in the background.
Season 6 of the series based on the George R. R. Martin novels concluded with Cersei vanquishing her rivals to become Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, Jon Snow being crowned King of the North, and the Mother of Dragons Daenerys setting sail with a full army at her disposal to claim the Iron Throne.
“Game of Thrones” seventh season debuts on HBO on July 16, 2017. The series was adapted for television by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. The seventh season is slated to star Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen and Kit Harington as Jon Snow.
