The seventh season saw the show's lead characters head towards a great battle for the Iron Throne, with the winner becoming the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, while a zombie army of White Walkers, led by the undead Night King, march south and threaten mankind's destruction.

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen finally came together and joined forces against the White Walkers and the remaining Stark children reunite at their home in Winterfell to enact their long awaited revenge against master manipulator Petyr Baelish.

The Lannister siblings also reunite in King's Landing in a tense meeting that puts their family ties to the test.

"Game of Thrones," a medieval fantasy based on George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" books, has won numerous Emmy awards, including best drama series last year. It is not eligible for this year's Emmys due to its summer premiere after production was pushed back to capture more winter landscapes for the storyline, but it will be back in the lineup for next year's Emmy awards.

Ahead of the show's final eighth season next year, a range of spin-offs are being developed, including a prequel series from screenwriter Jane Goldman.
