In any normal year, we’d be starting to reach peak levels of hype right about now – because we’d only be a month away from a brand new season of Game of Thrones hitting our screens.

This year, however, we don’t even have an official release date yet – all we know is that we have to wait until summer...

But finally we now have our first glimpse into the new season, in the form of the first promo poster.

It… doesn’t tell us much, does it? And yet it’s still enough to get you just a tiny bit excited. If we’re going to read potentially too much into it, what we do have here is a clash between ice and fire – something we’ve known would be coming since the very beginning, but may finally become reality in this latest season.

With Daenerys and her dragons set to land in Westeros imminently and the White Walkers edging ever closer to The Wall, we can be pretty sure a battle the size of which may never have been seen before on TV is coming, but knowing Game of Thrones it wouldn’t be a surprise if we have to wait until season 8 for that to go down.

Either way, with Jon Snow and Sansa back at Winterfell, Arya faceless and heading home too, The Hound on the loose and Cersei’s crazy rampage, we’re going to have a lot to look forward to.
