Game of Thrones: Jon Snow Calls for a United Front in New Season 7 Footage

It’s time to put aside those silly Iron Throne-thirsty differences — and quickly — Jon Snow urges in a new Game of Thrones trailer, because the enemy is real, and “it’s always been real.”

Ned Stark’s Rhaegar Targaryen’s valiant son seems to be speaking to Westeros’ warring Stark, Lannister and Targaryen clans as he says, “For centuries, our families fought together against their common enemy. Despite their differences, together. We need to do the same if we’re going to survive.”

The new trailer above, released Wednesday, gives fans an up-close-and-personal look at the very threat he describes, as the Night King and his frozen armies strike a scary shadow over all of your favorites from the HBO drama. (Seriously, there are a LOT of familiar faces in this two-minute spot.)

Game of Thrones‘ penultimate, seven-episode seventh season is set to premiere on Sunday, July 16, with the eighth and final season slated to follow in Summer 2018… or maybe 2019, given what HBO programming president Casey Bloys recently revealed.

The fantasy series’ showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have yet to write episodes or determine production schedules for Thrones‘ swan song, but the HBO exec won’t rule out episodes of the final run airing in 2019, saying he’d have “a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.”

    So Beric Dondarrion has the light bringer sword. and what are he, Jon, and Torrumnd doing above the wall????? and they look to be in a lot of trouble. The rest looks great but that has me on edge.

    There’s no way we are waiting till 2019 for final run. Hbo will be burnt to the ground by dragons before that happens.

  4. Jon Snow will always be Ned Stark’s son, just as any adopted child is still the child of the adoptive parent.

      You are absolutely correct. I believe the writer is referencing Rhaeger Targaryeon ‘s blood running through Jon’s veins simply as a reminder of what that very fact will come to mean to this story in the Seasons 6 & 7. The Starks will always be Jon’s family and in his heart; but the Targaryeon blood running through his veins will take Jon (and us) to places he never imagined possible. Only a month to wait!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait.!!!!!!
