Game of Thrones had a great Season 6, and Season 7 has been filming for a long while, now. While Season 6 has been getting a lot of awards for Game of Thrones, Season 7 has become the first season to be shot in the same year as its premiere. With Season 7 nearing the end of its filming, us fans are craving for anything official from HBO, at all, but forget about a poster or a trailer, we don’t even have an exact release date set, other than the vague ‘summer 2017’ label. Now, however, Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth on the show, might have helped us narrow it down. Read on!
Technically, when they say summer, they mean to say somewhere between mid-June to mid-September, so we have quite a window to cover, there. Liam Cunningham was attending a World Vision breakfast at L’Ecrivain restaurant in Dublin, where he was interviewed by the Irish Independent.
Talking about how the Season 7 premiere date had been delayed several times :
“I’ve been disappointing various people around the world because it was meant to come out in April. It’s July now, I think.
There’s going to be a launch and something special happening this year for the premiere. The bad news is, there will only be seven episodes and the final season starts again as far as I know in September.”
Again, although Liam did comment on the release of Season 7, he still didn’t sound too sure, so we wouldn’t take his word as gospel. He also repeated what he had said earlier about filming for Season 8 beginning in September. However, we are very curious about what that “something special” at the Season 7 release could be, and we have zero ideas, as of now.
What do you think it could be? Talk to us in the comments, below!
