Here's the synopsis of "Game of Thrones," per IMDB:
Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros; A forgotten race returns after being dormant for thousands of years.
If you have never seen "Game of Thrones," or fell off during an earlier season, then you are basically an outsider. AN OUTSIDER! Everyone is always talking about the show—even after 60 episodes. The seventh season premieres on July 16, and it's always interesting to see who's going to take over the Iron Thorne, kill or be killed. Yep, this is a show still on top of its game. And if last year's season finale is any indication, fans can't get enough.
Variety's Laura Prudom wrote in 2016:
No matter who’s on the Iron Throne, “Game of Thrones” continues to rule in ratings; HBO’s drama hit a series high for its Season 6 finale in live plus same day viewership, drawing 8.9 million viewers in a pivotal episode that killed off several major characters and shook up the show’s political landscape forever.
No spoilers, but in season seven, the Iron Thorne comes down to Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, and Jon Snow. So again, the show has only become more ruthless. Not only that, but there are a few spin-offs in the works: FOUR, allegedly!
Vanity Fair's Joanna Robinson wrote back in September:
When HBO announced in spring that it was considering four Game of Thrones spin-offs, fans were so dazzled by the sheer number of options that they didn’t quite know what to think. So, as he sometimes does in times of media frenzy and fan confusion, author George R.R. Martin took to his favorite platform, LiveJournal, to clear some things up. At the time, he declared that there were not just four possible spin-offs in the mix—but a secret fifth one as well. (He alluded to no. 5 cheekily and prematurely again on his blog last month.) Now, though, the news is finally and officially sanctioned by HBO: Game of Thrones executive producer Bryan Cogman has thrown his hat into the ring for a potential prequel. And if you’re a fan of the current show, that’s very good news indeed.
Whatever these spin-offs give us, we'll take it. That's for sure. But Thronies will have to wait until 2019 for more "GoT."
But in the meantime, let's check out what makes this show great—the many characters who have met their doom because of the Iron Thorne and the harsh medieval-like setting. Here are WatchMojo's top 10 deaths on "GoT" below.
