Eager for the highly anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones? You’re not the only one. Fans have been speculating about what’s to come for months. Luckily, we finally have a trailer to tie us over until July. Watch it below.
The Red Woman returns! Yara and Ellaria kiss! Jon Snow and Tormund run! Of course, there aren’t too many spoilers here, but we’re hoping the season 7 premiere will reveal much more about where each character is at. According to the last count, it will be 59 minutes long. Since we only get 7 episodes this season, it makes sense for each to be a bit closer to one hour.
Alternatively, you can watch the Game of Thrones season 6 trailer to remind you of how long it’s been, and just how much the wait will be worth it!

Six Shows to Watch When You Can’t Watch Game of Thrones
While everyone is eagerly waiting for Game of Thrones season 7, we still have a bit of winter to go through until the premiere. To tie you over, Netflix, Stan and Foxtel Now all offer several shows worthy of your attention. So if you feel like binging something new prior to July 17 or maybe waiting to watch all the new Game of Thronesepisodes at once, here are some amazing series to catch up on in the meantime.
House of Cards (Netflix)
One of Netflix’s first original series is still going strong. The show follows the ruthless rise to power of Frank Underwood and his wife, Claire. Starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching these two manipulate their way to the top. Season 5 recently hit Netflix, so you have plenty of episodes to binge until Game of Thrones returns.
Orange Is the New Black (Netflix)
Another popular and acclaimed Netflix original series, Orange Is the New Black started off revolving around Piper, a 30-something woman who is sentenced to 15 months in a minimum-security women’s federal prison. As the series progressed, however, it began to focus on the other inmates as well, each getting their turn in the spotlight. Season 5 premieres June 9.
Twin Peaks (Stan)
If there’s one show that might have gotten more attention than Game of Thrones this year, it’s the new Twin Peaks. The revival is currently streaming on Stan and it picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen got murdered. All episodes are written by David Lynch and Mark Frost. Ready, set, binge!
If you’re into weird stuff, Fringe is the show for you. What initially started as a procedural tackling impossible events became a complex series about identity and parallel universes. It may have ended in 2013, but it’s still as relevant as ever. With five seasons to binge, there’s a lot of material to go through. You can stream the series on Stan.
12 Monkeys (Foxtel Now)
Ready for even more weirdness? 12 Monkeys is a science fiction mystery drama with a time traveling plot loosely based on the 1995 film of the same name. Let’s see if you can keep up. The series is currently in its third season. You can tune in via Foxtel Now.
The Americans (Foxtel Now)
One of the most acclaimed dramas currently on the air, The Americans is set in the early 1980s during the Cold War. It tells the story of Elizabeth and Philip Jennings, two Soviet KGB officers posing as an American married couple. Starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. Watch the series, now in its fifth season, on Foxtel Now.
