Return to Westeros with a new batch of photos from Game of Thrones season 7

Winter has finally arrived and the march towards Westeros is well underway. With just thirteen-episodes left of HBO's Game of Thrones spread across two more seasons, we'll likely see more than a few of the remaining fan-favourite characters bite the dust. A large handful of new photos from Game of Thrones' seventh season have been released which provide a quick tease as to what some of those characters are up to. If you'd care to place your bets on which of these folks will make it to the end of the series, now's the time.

Game of Thrones may be on the road to wrapping things up, but we certainly haven't seen the last of George R.R. Martin's universe on HBO. Several Game of Thrones prequels are in the very early stages of development, but HBO programming president Casey Bloys has said that not all of the prequels will make it to series, and those that do, won't appear until after Game of Thrones has aired its series finale.

I want to put the prequels in context. It should go without saying I love having a show with this much intense interest around it. Even the smallest bit of information is a big deal and I appreciate that. But I wanted to make sure fans know this is a really embryonic process. I haven’t even seen outlines. In the press at large, everybody said, ‘there are four spinoffs’ and they assume that means each one is happening and we’re going to have a new Game of Thrones show per quarter. That’s not what’s going on. The idea is not to do four shows. The bar set by [Benioff and Weiss] is so high that my hope is to get one show that lives up to it. Also, this is a long-term plan. Our No. 1 goal is the seventh season this summer and getting the eighth season written and aired.

When asked if he had seen a cut of the first episode of Game of Thrones' seventh season, Bloys replied, "I don’t want to oversell, but I can’t imagine anybody being disappointed in this season. It’s amazing." Game of Thrones returns to HBO on July 16, 2017.
