It’s been one of our burning questions for the last couple seasons of Game of Thrones: where the hell is Gendry? And, of course, the follow-up: is he ever coming back? Now we know the answer is yes! And as to the “when” question, well, that is season seven, folks — as in this season that’s launching on Sunday! See, this week was the big Game of Thrones premiere red carpet, and the actor who plays Gendry, Joe Dempsie, showed up and walked the red carpet (looking very handsome, I might add).

It could have been a somewhat subtle confirmation of his return, but he gave solid confirmation when he told The LA Times he’s definitely back this season. His reaction to fans figuring out that he’d be back was positive: “Very fortunately, from what I’ve seen it’s been nothing but interest and excitement and some quite witty memes.” Can’t wait to see him back in Westeros!
