Just in time for winter, we’re getting our first look at Game of Thrones: Season 7.
HBO’s “Coming in 2017” preview, which aired on TV and has not officially been posted online, debuted the first footage of Season 7 (via Watchers on the Wall). It’s fairly innocuous, but still an exciting tease of some changes that are already afoot. Check out screenshots of the three scenes featured below.
Spoilers for Game of Thrones: Season 6 below.
The most interesting new shot is the above image of Arya Stark. She’s got a new wardrobe, though it’s not surprising considering she arrived back in Westeros at the end of Season 6. Based on her cloak, it seems more likely that she’s heading north instead of south this coming season.
Meanwhile, Sansa is once again in the Winterfell godswood, the same place where Littlefinger suggested she should be Queen in the North in Season 6’s finale. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Sophie Turner teased of her Season 7 arc: “She’s seemingly in control for the first time — and it really suits her. She’s kind of having a bit of a power trip. But she’s also becoming more insecure, because there are threats to the power that she holds.”
Speaking of threats to her power, Jon Snow looks like his new digs as King in the North really suit him.
This isn’t the first promo HBO has released for Game of Thrones: Season 7. Back in July, the network also released a video announcing the new season was in production.
Game of Thrones: Season 7 premieres in summer 2017. Check out IGN’s review of Season 6.
