HBO is revealing the date via a live stream on Facebook so if you like to watch ice melt, head on over there. We'll have the dare for you here as soon as its revealed.
Game of Thrones Season 7 will premiere on July 16, 2017.
Season 7 of Game of Thrones will run for seven episodes, which is shorter than the standard 10-episode runs the show has run through its first six seasons. Following Season 7, the popular series will round out its television run with a 6-episode final season expected to arrive in 2018.
The slightly later than usual premiere date comes from a later-than-usual start to production of the HBO series. Typically launching new seasons early in April, the team behind Game of Thrones decided to film Season 7 in winter months to provide a colder, grey feel the their global sets.
Season 7 of Game of Thrones will follow the aftermath of Jon Snow and Sansa Stark reclaiming Winterfell from Ramsay Bolton after their epic Battle of the Bastards. Currently, Cersei Lannister is laying claim to the Iron Throne, with her brother and lover unsettled by her cold response to their son Tommen's suicide which was largely prompted by her actions which cost Margery Tyrell her life.
“Because we know we’re coming to an end, and… what we’ve been filming in Season 7—without giving anything away, things are coming to a head, so not only do we feel the passage of time ... that’s also been reflected in what we’re shooting,” Davos Seaworth actor Liam Cunningham said of Season 7.
According to a months old report, Game of Thrones Season 7 episodes will be directed by Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, Matt Shakman, and Alan Taylor. The show is currently the #1 ranked series in ComicBook.com's TV Database, with a 92.55 rating from fans.
