Jon, Cersei or Daenerys; who will rule the season 7?

Finally, the most anticipated serial of the season and No. 1 show in HBO history, Game of Thrones revealed its first trailer. The season is set to be premiered by 16th of July, 2016. Last season, the show had an average viewership of 25.7 million across all mediums per weekly episode.  

To hold onto the millions of fans appeased, HBO decided to hint out a little taste of what’s to come with the new 92-second teaser trailer entitled ‘Long Walk’, with a background song Down by James.  

With only 13 episodes to go up until the series ends as the upcoming season will consist of seven episodes and the final eighth season will have six, fans are munching at the bit to find out who will finish up ruling all Seven Kingdoms. Clues can be found in each frame of footage in the 92-second teaser, which got nearly 4.5 million views its first day online.   

In the teaser, the top three opponents for the Iron Throne each take a seat at their respective thrones: Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is at the Red Keep, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is at the Great Hall of Winterfell and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is at previously unseen castle of Dragonstone. And, the ominous Night King, head of the White Walkers, isn’t too far behind.  

Set leaks showing a scene with the Mother of Dragons and Jon Snow nipped up all over the internet last year, leaving fans speculating if the two will finally meet this season. There was also a conspiracy floating around that HBO leaked these images deliberately to throw fans off.  

The nearly 5 million Twitter followers of the show can follow and tweet on the trend #GOTs7 for the latest updates.  

The TV hit Game of Thrones is based on the series of epic fantasy books A Song of Ice and Fire written by novelist and screenwriter George R.R. Martin.
