Tv Season Info

New alliances are drawn as the war for the Iron Throne of Westeros intensifies. Daenarys Stormborn (Emilia Clarke) makes her way across the sea to her birthplace, Dragonstone, bringing with her the Unsullied, the Dothraki horde, and her dragons. Through Varys' (Conleth Hill) scheming and Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) advice, she forges bonds with Ellaria (Indira Varma) of Dorne, Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg) of Highgarden, and the Greyjoy siblings Yara (Gemma Whelan) and Theon (Alfie Allen). Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) agrees to marry Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek) after the war to build up her navy, to the dismay of her twin Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Loyal Stark bannermen declare Jon Snow (Kit Harington) the King in the North, a move which upsets Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), now Lady of Winterfell. However, despite protests from his new subjects, Jon travels to Dragonstone to seek Daenarys' help in fighting the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) and the horrors beyond the Wall.

Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones Season 7

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (20)

The season premiere of Game of Thrones was thoroughly satisfying, a transporting hour that brilliantly reestablished the chessboard for the new, penultimate season.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

So far, this looks like a wonderful season for the female characters.

Jul 16, 2017 | Full Review…

Game of Thrones, as always, leaves us conflicted and confused. It remains a show that hates the weak, but loves its small victories. It is the most delicious of cheeseburgers, but also hard to evaluate without seeing more.

Jul 16, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Gorgeous season flawed by some serious narrative missteps. GoT is no longer bulletproof, or dragon proof.

Top Critic

Thus far, Game of Thrones has been pretty enjoyable this summer. Lots of intense action and rousing spectacle. Breathtaking dragons.

Aug 18, 2017 | Full Review…

There's a real sense that these producers have figured out how to tell this story.

The showrunners are wholly loosed... Free to run wild to the ultimate, constrained only by the levels of glee, cliffhangerdom, betrayal, dragonglass, mask magic, vomitus, faeces, gore and glory they feel they can reasonably stuff behind our eyeballs.

Jul 24, 2017 | Full Review…

While I found "Dragonstone" to be completely engaging, I was expecting a bit more action. It's evident the writers decided to go with the slow build. I take that to mean the remaining six episodes of this season should be quite the feast.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

At long last, Game of Thrones is back. The HBO drama opened its seventh season with an unexpected but satisfying bit of revenge and then pulled back to take the temperature of our core players.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Every single episode in this season felt like it was integral to the overall storyline and everyone felt like they were being used to their fullest potential.

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 7

½

Game of Thrones Season 7 may only have 7 episodes, but what it lacks in its usual amount of episodes it surely makes up in exciting, heart-drenching sequences and surprising revelations. Arguments can be may on the 'style over substance' sacrifice this season has made but there's no denying the sheer dramatic tour de force it brought making the series bigger and better today. 4.5/5

Doesn't hit on all cylinders like Season 6 did, and is probably the most cartoonish run to date, but still the most exciting thing going on on TV at the moment.
