Game of Thrones Season 7 (HBO)

Winter is coming, and the end is coming with it. HBO's massively successful Game of Thrones is setting up its inevitable endgame with the first of two shortened final seasons that promise plenty of fantasy action and maneuvering of game pieces on the giant board that is Westeros. Last season saw many of those pieces put in new places, with Jon Snow the new King in the North, Danny setting sail in pursuit of the Iron Throne, and Cersei keeping that very seat warm for the Mother of Dragons. There's still a lot of story to unfold and only 13 episodes until it's officially spinoff time, leaving series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff with the toughest job in TV: fulfilling fans' massive expectations.
