Game of Thrones season 6 had the greatest finale till date. However, soon after the season got over, the fans received bad news regarding the next season since HBO confirmed that the next season would premiere much later than usual. What seems worse is that there would be only 7 episodes, instead of the usual 10.
The decision was taken because the Game of Thrones team wanted to film scenes during winter, since “Winter is here” as we heard from Sansa Stark in season 6 finale. That meant the shooting started in September instead of July and it will get over in Feb.
As a result, the season 7 premiere date has been pushed back from Spring to Summer and until now we haven’t been given any idea regarding when we can expect the season to premiere.
We might have a definite answer and we are certain that you are not going to like it. On the IMDb page for Game of Thrones season 7, it has been mentioned that Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere on 25th of June!
We are not sure how true this is but if it’s true, it means that the 7th season of Game of Thrones will premiere exactly 2 months after the 6th season premiere date. Game of Thrones season 6 premiere was on 25th April and the exciting episode 10 had aired on 27th June.
Considering that the 7th season has only 7 episodes, the season will premiere on 25th June and the finale of season 7 will air on 6th August! There has been no official announcement regarding the season 7 premiere date and we must take this with a pinch of salt.
Even during season 6, IMDb had mentioned on its page that Joseph Mawle (Benjen Stark) was going to return in episode 6. However, it did turn out to be true. This is the reason why we can’t completely ignore this release date mentioned on IMDb as just a speculative date.
But wait, there is more news!
