Watch the First Footage of Season 7 in New 'Game of Thrones' Trailer
The race for the throne is heating up.
HBO has released a new trailer for the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones, which is set to premiere July 16.
Set to the song "Sit Down" by James, the minute-and-a-half-long clip centers on the trio vying for the crown: Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).
The promo hints at the battle of fire and ice to come in the series as Daenerys and her dragons inch toward Westeros and the Night King’s army descends from Beyond the Wall.
The eighth season will be the final season of the series. Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have told THR they're planning on no more than 15 episodes to end the drama.
