'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Premiere Date Announcement

'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Premiere Date Announcement

Game of Thrones fans can rest easy: The show's penultimate season is set to debut on July 16.

And who knows? It could also hint at the suspected union between Daenerys and Jon Snow (fire and ice joining forces, in other words). Or a freaky Facebook live event which invited everyone to literally watch ice melt for about forty minutes before finally revealing the date? A mixture of fire and ice - both a reference to the title of the book series and the coming conflict - and a hashtag. Now, how do you think that HBO made that announcement?

HBO has still not announced the premiere date for Season 7 of Game of Thrones and has merely said the latest instalment will be aired in the summer. The show, which centers on nine noble families' fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, has attracted record viewership for HBO. The premiere date then appeared at the very end.

Encased in a block of ice, fans were encouraged to type "Fire" into the comments in an attempt to unleash flames upon the ice and reveal the premiere date.

It's the sound of a million Game of Thrones fans, impatiently tapping their feet while glancing at their watches every five second. Over the course of the roughly 70 minute live feed, a little more than 160, 000 people tuned in to see the reveal.

It will be available from 2am on Sky Atlantic on July 17 and online streaming service Now TV, followed by a repeat at 9pm the same day.

Season 7 will consist of seven episodes, as Variety first reported, with Season 8 expected to be somewhere between 6 or 8 episodes.
