A short trailer for Game of Thrones season 7 appeared on HBO in the US on Sunday night.

The teaser trailer appeared during an advertisement break in the season finale of Westworld.

The video hasn't been published online yet but fans took photos of the trailer and uploaded them online as they speculated what season seven might bring.

The 'Coming in 2017' trailer feature focused on the Starks, who have suffered six seasons of misery in the show. In the last season fans had some hope that their fortunes were improving when they saw all four surviving Starks back on the one continent - with Sansa and Jon claiming back Winterfell following the Battle of the Bastards.

In season seven could we see a proper family reunion? Stills from the trailer see Sansa standing in front of the weirwood tree in Winterfell with a look of shock on her face. Could this be the moment when she reunites with her sister Arya? Or is something more sinister lurking in the Godswood?

Arya, meanwhile, is shown riding on horseback. In the last season we saw her train to become one of the Faceless men before murdering Walder Frey. Is she heading back to Winterfell? Or will she continue to tick off names from her 'Kill List' and head south instead? The white background suggests that she is heading north so we may just have to wait a little while longer to see her face off with Cersei.

Jon Snow is shown in conversation with a redhead, possibly Sansa. Fans are speculating that Jon meeting with his half-sister to announce he'll be riding south to meet Daenerys and leave Sansa in charge of Winterfell.

We will have to wait a while to find out as season seven is set to premiere in summer 2017, much later than Game of Thrones' usual spring air date.
