It's here! Below is the first official trailer for 'Game of Thrones' series seven.

The next series in HBO's blockbuster fantasy epic will start on Sky on 17th July. As previously, the episodes will be simulcast at 2am, which is when they air in the US. Better prepare for some groggy Mondays this summer.

However, Sky will repeat each episode at 9pm that evening.

Series seven should be the penultimate series of 'Game of Thrones'. Unlike the previous 10-episode series, it will comprise just seven instalments. These will be a combination of original storylines and those taken from George RR Martin's upcoming novels in the series, 'The Winds of Winter' and 'A Dream of Spring'.

There's no word on what to expect in terms of plot, though the trailer suggests a 'Great War' is coming. We also know that Oscar winner Jim Broadbent will make his debut on the show, playing an "old professor character", he's said.

An HBO exec has also hinted that once the show ends, it could lead to a spinoff. Which wouldn't surprise us at all, considering it's such a cash cow.

'Game of Thrones' usually starts in the Spring, but will air later this year because the makers had to wait for the weather to be right in some locations when filming.

If you've missed out on the action so far, you can catch up on series one to six exclusively on Sky Box Sets and Now TV from 1st May.
