Game of Thrones Season 7 Confirmed for Summer 2017

Game of Thrones Season 7 summer 2017HBO has announced that Game of Thrones Season 7 will, indeed, be delayed by a few months. Instead of the typical April release window, the seventh season will premiere “summer 2017”.

What’s more, we now have confirmation from executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. that Season 7 will be just seven episodes.

The delay, which was announced via a press release from HBO, is due to having to accommodate the shooting scheduled, which is slightly different this go-around because of the changing weather. Spain and Iceland have been confirmed as two of the shooting locations, including Sevilla, Almodovar del Rio, Santiponce, Zumaia, and Caceres.

Although the Game of Thrones Season 7 delay and shortening are unfortunate, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise if you’ve been following the GoT news following the Season 6 finale. Hopefully, we’ll get an official premiere date soon. Luckily, that extra time is going to give us a bit more time to speculate as to what might happen next season.
