Season 7 will consist of seven episodes, as Variety first reported, with Season 8 expected to be somewhere between 6 or 8 episodes.
Waiting for the Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere hasn’t been easy for most fans. Majority of them have been craving its release since they learned that they will have to wait longer than they ever did before for any other season. HBO, the makers of the popular TV drama series, also confirmed that there would be a delay.
Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere Date 2017
There are still many months of waiting, if indeed the Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere date is somewhere in June or July as many have predicted. This hasn’t helped fans who will have to endure the longest wait to date. The popular TV drama usually resumes in April since its first season. However, there is something good news coming through for those who are still scratching their heads to know the exact date.
Actor Liam Cunningham who plays the role of Sir Davos may have just handed fans a lifeline in an interview with the Independent, a UK newspaper. He let the cat out of the bag by revealing that the show won’t be out until July. What is more? Some hawk-eyed fans have reported that Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere date is June 25. They saw this on the IMDB, a television listing site before it was quickly deleted. Both of this prediction mean that fans still have months ahead to wait which might be disappointing for most of them. It doesn’t help that HBO hasn’t announced an official return date. But if the cast and the story-line are as gripping as expected, all will be forgiven.
Game of Thrones season 6 ended on a high with some great cliff-hangers. Jon Snow was declared the King in the North, Cersei Lannister enthroned herself as the protector of the Iron Throne in Westeros. On the other hand, the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen had assembled her troops and was marching reclaim her crown in Westeros. That means there is so much at stake to look forward to in Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere.

‘Winter is coming,’ that could be the reason why they pushed forward the premiere date so that they can film the seventh season in colder weather. HBO have also confirmed that Season 7 will be filmed in Iceland, North Ireland, and Spain. That gives us an idea of what to expect in this penultimate season. We expect the fiercest battle yet between the living and the Wight Walkers. The spell on the wall that had kept out the Wight army was finally broken when the Nights King put his mark on Bran’s hand.
As a result, the existential clash between the Wight army and the living is perhaps the most mouth-watering clash that we will see. The Night’s Watch has been weakened because Jon Snow has renounced his vows and taken over Winterfell as the King in the North. The magic that held the wall together has been broken. No wonder, many think the Night’s King will fancy his chances of finally overrunning the wall and the land of the living. You will have to wait for the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere for this and more sumptuous plot twists.
