Will George RR Martin get that Barack Obama cameo? We’ll see. But now we do at least have a premiere date for season 7 of Game of Thrones. Courtesy of the on-hand teaser, we find that the much-anticipated upcoming installment premieres on July 16, after being pushed backed multiple times from its initial April debut.

The above clip in turn highlights major house sigils crumbling to ash, while featuring no actual footage from season 7. We do, however, receive a snippet of new dialogue from Jon Snow, saying “There is only one war that matters. The Great War. And it is here.”

In addition, the new season of GoT is to welcome seven episodes as opposed to the usual 10.

So, who’s looking forward to the July 16 premiere?

Not NYC, not LA.
