Game of Thrones Season 7, as we all know, has been running on a delayed schedule than usual. The season will have only 7 episodes, three less than usual. The delay has been because the production wanted to shoot the winter scenes in actually icy conditions. After the filming finished, around the end of February, we had been waiting for the reveal of the premiere date, which had been previously revealed by HBO to be somewhere in summer, this year. After quite a wait, HBO finally revealed the premiere date to be July 16th, in a live video, on Facebook. An official teaser was also posted. Naturally, fans took to social media to post some hilarious reactions to the reveal.
The live video showed a block of eyes which was melting really slowly, to reveal the premiere date. At the end, the teaser was posted:
