What to expect from the penultimate season of George RR Martin's fantasy epic
HBO's sword and sorcery epic is heading into the final furlong with just two seasons to go. Here are all the details we have on season 7 and when and where you can watch Game of Thrones in the UK.
When can I watch Game of Throne Season 7?
The Thrones team needed cold weather for filming (winter really is coming) so season 7 is screening several months later than usual. UK fans will be able to catch the opening episode at the same time as the rest of the world with a special 2am simulcast on Mon 17 July (ie late Sunday night), it will then be repeated at 9pm the same day for folk who aren't as obsessed (the fools!).
How can I watch season 7 in the UK?
Sky Atlantic are the official broadcaster in the UK. GoT will also be available on their On Demand catch up service, NOW TV and via iTunes.
How many episodes?
This is the penultimate series but sadly it's also the shortest yet with just seven episodes. 2018's season 8 will be even shorter with just six, so we really are hurtling towards the end game with just 13 episodes before the finale.
Who's starring in season 7?
Fan favourites including Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Arya Stark (Maisie Willimas) and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) are all back. New cast members include Jim Broadbent (in a 'significant' role) and Tom Hopper as Dickon Tarly (ie Sam's brother). Plus cameo appearances from Ed Sheeran, Brent Hinds (Mastodon) and indie popsters Bastille.
