Game Of Thrones Season 7 Gets July Premiere Date, First Teaser Revealed

Winter Is Coming on July 16!

Game of Thrones Season 7

July 16, 2017.

Mark the date in your calendar, and be it a holiday, a meeting, a life-saving surgery cancel all your plans. Because that is the date Game of Thrones is coming back.

As revealed on a Facebook live video on the official Game of Thrones page - an event which involved over a million people watching a block of ice melt for over an hour, incessantly commenting 'FIRE' to make it go faster, because Thrones - the show confirmed what was first let slip by Liam Cunningham, that the long-awaited new season would air in July.

It was revealed last year that the show would be pushed back to summer from its usual spring slot, because of delayed production schedules thanks to the arrival of winter in Westeros (the Starks did spend six years warning us to be fair). The new season will also just be seven episodes long.

To accompany the announcement, a short teaser was also released, showing various house sigils crumbling while quotes from the past six seasons played out. While it didn't contain any new footage, there was one new line of dialogue, with Jon Snow saying: "There is only one war that matters. The Great War. And it is here."

Get hype.
