The upcoming season has not been featured in one of author George R.R. Martin’s popular novels. The fantasy writer is currently working on the next installment in the series, Winds of Winter, but the show has surpassed his bestselling books so fans don’t have any clues as to what comes next.
Season 6 of the series ended with Cersei Lannister wiping out an entire village and the revelation that Jon Snow is not really the son of Ned Stark as he prepares to lead troops into the ultimate battle.
The eighth season of the hit series has been confirmed as its last, though there are plans for potential spin-offs.
Season 7 of Game of Thrones will premiere next summer and will feature only seven episodes.
