Game of Thrones: Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister in new trailer

A new teaser for the seventh season of Game of Thrones was released on Thursday and it seems to hint at the major conflicts to come.

The 90-second video stars Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, and Jon Snow, taking a slow walk to the Iron Throne with an odd song titled “Sit Down” playing in the background. Snow appears to take a seat in Winterfell while Targaryen’s chair waits for her at Dragonstone.

The clip ends with Cersei taking a deep breath of the frigid winter air with a final, quick cut to the Night King, who doesn’t really care who sits on the Iron Throne.

Season Seven will feature only seven episodes, down from the usual 10. Producers also decided to shift seasons for the release date—delaying the typical spring release date to accommodate to new shooting schedule to film while the weather changed.

Joining the mix this year will be Jim Broadbent, Ed Sheeran, and New York Mets pitcher Noah “Thor” Syndergaard. The latter two personalities will make brief cameos in the series while Broadbent is expected to play a key role this season, appearing in five of the seven episodes.

"I'm a maester, an archmaester," he told ScreenCrush. "I'm an old professor character. I did sort of one major scene in each episode.”

The Seventh Season of Game of Thrones hits HBO on July 16.
