In advance of the show’s Season 7 premiere on July 16 — which we know because a giant melting block of ice told us so — HBO has released a batch of new photos from the penultimate season of “Game Of Thrones.” Fans who have been watching this show for the past six seasons will be relieved to discover that HBO hasn’t aggressively killed off any of the main characters during the offseason (hey, you never know), with the new photos confirming that everyone seems alive and well to kick things off.
Below is your look at how Jamie, Cersei, Jon, Brienne, and the rest of our lovable bunch of murdering rapscallions are faring in the events following the bombing of Kings Landing and the Battle of the Bastards. It’s been a tough couple of years for these characters, but something tells me things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get any better.
“Game of Thrones” will return on July 16, 2017. [Making Game of Thrones]
