Game of Thrones season 7 premieres on July 16
HBO announced today that Game of Thrones’ seventh season will premiere on July 16th. The summer debut comes later than previous premieres thanks the producers wanting to accommodate the shooting schedule, reports The Verge.
Last season saw the series enter its final stretch, with Daenerys Targaryen on her way to Westeros, Cersei Lannister taking the Iron Throne, Arya Stark avenging her family, and Jon Snow being crowned King of the North. Now that winter and the White Walkers have come, the Great War is about to begin.
The upcoming season will only have seven episodes instead of the usual 10. Series creator David Benioff told Deadline last year that the show had about 15 more episodes left in it, so the final season will likely have up to eight episodes of blood and mayhem before the saga is finally complete.
