Fans of the wildly popular epic fantasy series Game of Thrones have already been teased with the first official trailer for the forthcoming seventh season, and the latest slate of images and magazine covers depicts a reunion of the Stark children. After being split asunder over the course of the show's tumultuous first season, the Northern born children of the late Eddard and Catelyn Stark have been set adrift on various paths of independent volition, triumph, and tragedy.
As depicted in the season seven trailer, the currently living Stark children are each set to face vastly different trajectories over the course of the show's forthcoming slate of episodes on HBO. With Jon Snow continuing to exhibit command of the Night's Watch as King in the North, Sansa Stark contesting with the poisonous influence of Petyr Baelish, Bran Stark taking on a host of premonitory powers, and Arya Stark continuing to come into her own among strange company, things are all set to heat up leading into the latest season - and a new slate of promotional material depicts a reunion of said characters behind the scenes.
In the latest slate of images released via EW, Game of Thrones fans can catch their first sneak peek at the cast members of season seven who comprise the beloved Stark children, including Kit Harrington as Jon, Sophie Turner as Sansa, Isaac Hempstead Wright as Bran, and Maisie Williams as Arya. Depicted in gleeful camaraderie and coy good will behind the scenes of the hit HBO fantasy-drama series, things are definitely looking up for the return of the mega-hit franchise.

Following the events depicted in the last season of the George R.R. Martin created series, Game of Thrones is destined to get even more interesting as the three remaining top contenders to the Iron Throne come to an inevitable collision with one another. It remains to be seen whether Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, or Cersei Lannister finally becomes the chief ruler of Westeros - not to mention whether or not Arya and Bran will ever be reunited with Jon and Sansa.
The latest slate of images are a welcome sight for sore eyes who hold the Stark children in high regard, and with any luck all four characters will manage to ride the tide that will be cresting soon by way of the seventh season of Game of Thrones. On that note, here's to hoping for the very best from chief showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
Game of Thrones season seven will premiere on HBO starting July 16, 2017.
