Lena Headey as Cersei on Game of Thrones.

The newly released trailer for season 7 of "Game of Thrones" by HBO features all your favorite characters preparing for the long awaited war.

As Cersei vows to defeat the numerous enemies from the four corners of the kingdom, Daenerys lays claim to the iron throne with her fierce dragons by her side.

It's safe to say that viewers are at the edge of their seats as "Game of Thrones" will be returning to your screens almost three months late than its usual early-April start and will be premiering on July 16.

CNN reports that the show was delayed because the story required a snowy setting, which is impossible to create during the summer in their filming locations.

The season will consist of only seven episodes as opposed to its usual ten.
