The premiere date of Game Of Thrones season 7 was announced in a very
special way this Thursday, via Facebook Live!
Thousands of fans had to watch a live stream for more than an hour. The video
showed an ice block that was being melted with fire. As soon as the ice melted,
the release date was announced: July 16 th !
A brand new poster has also been released:
We already knew that this year, the new season of the Emmy-winning show
would not be premiering in April like it always has in the last six years. Rumor
had it that season 7 would be released in July and it looks like they were true
Along with the release date, a brand new teaser video for the new season was
released. In the clip, some of the most memorable quotes from the show are
heard as we see some statues of all the symbols of the big houses.
It has also been revealed that season seven will only have seven episodes,
breaking the tradition of each season having exactly 10 episodes. The new
season took around five months to be filmed; the same as the past seasons, so
we don’t know yet if the episodes will be longer or maybe each episode will have
a lot going on.
However one thing is for sure, this season is expected to be very intense. The
show will end after season eight, which is expected to come out in 2018, so
season seven will definitely be worth the wait.
While the show needs two more years to come to an end, HBO sis already
looking at ideas for a Game of Thrones prequel, based on the books by George
R.R. Martin. Meanwhile the writer is yet to release The Winds of Winter from the
series A Song of Ice and Fire.
Watch below the season 7 teaser video and the video of the release date being
