Game of Thrones returns for 7th season

POSTED ON 03 JULY 2017

The hotly anticipated Season 7 of Game of Thrones returns to UK TV screens this July. But who will conquer the Iron Throne?

Game of Thrones returns to HBO over in America on Sunday 16th July with UK lovers of the series able to see it on Sky Atlantic and Now TV on Monday 17th July at 2am, before being repeated at 9pm on the same day.

The series has become the most watched series in HBO history and a worldwide TV phenomenon and remains a huge hit for the network. An original series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling series, ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, it was adapted for television by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. Each episode cost over $10 million but with an ever-growing audience, it has proven to be money well spent.

Season 6 finished with breathtaking footage and strengthened storylines, while following the continuing struggle between the Starks and other noble families of Westeros for the Iron Throne. In the final episode, the Starks defeated the Bolton forces in battle, and Jon Snow was proclaimed the King in the North.

Meanwhile, Tyrion attempted to rule Meereen while Daenerys was held captive by a Dothraki tribe. But she soon gets revenge by burning them alive and takes command of the Dothraki. And at King’s Landing, the Tyrell army attempted to liberate Margaery and Loras, but Margaery capitulates to the High Sparrow, who becomes more powerful by influencing King Tommen. At her trial, Cersei burns the Great Sept, killing her rivals, while Tommen kills himself.

Unopposed, Cersei is then crowned Queen of Westeros. And in a twist, we saw Brandon using his powers to learn that Jon Snow is actually the son of Lyanna and Rhaegar, having been adopted by Eddard after she died during Robert’s rebellion! With plenty of twists and turns, there was plenty to keep viewers hanging on every development – and season 7 promises to continue where it left off.

So it’s no surprise to discover that Game of Thrones received the most nominations for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, with 23 nominations, and went on to win twelve of them, including one for Outstanding Drama Series for the second year in a row.

But who will conquer the Iron Throne? You’ll just have to tune in to find out! Discover more about Game of Thrones by visiting www.hbo.co.uk/game-of-thrones
