9 Season six of Game Of Thrones was so massive that it won 12 Emmy awards, taking its total to 38 - breaking the record for number of wins for a scripted show previously held by sitcom Frasier.

The HBO hit show has already announced that there will only be seven episodes in this season leaving fans heart-broken, with Iain Glen (Ser Jorah) explaining that "they feel they need that time to shoot seven hours as opposed to ten", leaving us all guessing what's next?

After Tommen killed himself in response, Cersei took the Iron Throne for herself. Meanwhile, in the U.S. the new season will premiere on July 16 (Sunday) on HBO Network.

Meanwhile in King's Landing, Cersei channeled her inner Mad Queen and shockingly blew up the Great Sept of Baelor, killing the High Sparrow and every Tyrell except Olenna.

With Daenerys coming to Westeros, many fans are wondering whether a Targaryan twosome, aka an alliance with (her nephew?) Jon Snow, is on the cards.

Here, then, are 13 things you should know going into Sunday's premiere.

Obviously, there's no word on when or how Gendry will return but hey, at least we'll FINALLY find out where he's been rowing all this time. After the explosion took a chunk out of the city-and the Game of Thrones cast-Cersei claimed the Iron Throne and was named ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, while her brother/sometimes lover, Jaime Lannister comes in just in time to see how evil his sister really is.

I think everyone has a love-hate relationship with Cersei. But given the tools that we have, what else can we project for the start of the seventh season? Add Tyrion's father's hatred for his third child and you've got a solid theory.

The two girls had the pleasure of finding their "big brother" Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow. Of course, you can also watch all of the Game of Thrones episodes on demand. Will the Faceless Man come after her for her theft? Getting down on his knees, he then played Arya Stark.

If these three do unite, this leaves just Bran whose whereabouts is unknown. This battle of the living versus the dead is described by Jon in the series' trailer as "the only war that matters". Just how powerful is the leader of the White Walkers?

It's been a while since the last season of Game of Thrones ended, but the drought is well and truly over.
