There are threats all around in 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 trailer

The trailer's performance has not only outdone HBO's viewing record but also the record of the television industry.

Then we heard showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss say that Season 8 of Game of Thrones would be six episodes long.

With the end of the show looming, fans can't help but wonder, who is going to win the battle, which of our favourites are going to die trying, and with Jon and Sansa reunited, will Arya find her way home again?

The Game of Thrones Season 7 will premiere on July 16.

Fans of HBO's tentpole fantasy series "Game of Thrones" have been waiting with something less than patience for their first look at the delayed, penultimate season of the beloved show.

Daenerys Targaryen's army is now pretty massive and her three dragons are now fully grown are participating in the battle with their 'mother.' We get a glimpse of Tyrion Lannister, Hand to Queen Daenerys, inspecting the battleground. That's good news for virtually every other drama series on the air since "Thrones" has monopolized the awards, winning 24 prizes in the last two years alone, including Best Drama Series both times (2015, 2016).

Cersei waxing on all the enemies the Lannisters are surrounded by, all while standing on a giant map of Westeros in King's Landing.

The narrative shifts to Daenerys at that point, as we see her reclaiming her birthplace: the castle of Dragonstone.

"I was born to rule the seven kingdoms...and I will". Thanks to some media, we can quite comfortably guess the rendezvous is between the last Targaryen and northern heartthrob Jon Snow (who may or may not be her nephew).

Daenerys is back with her magnificent dragons and Unsullied army all set to go to a war.

Additionally, a new teaser poster featuring the Night King has been released, and EW have unveiled a number of new images, which we'll include below the trailer. But the last episode of season 6 introduced one more deserving ruler of the seven kingdoms and no we are not talking about Daenerys Stormborn.
