When Will Game Of Thrones Season 7 Premiere?
Winter is (almost) here. Are you ready?
Game of Thrones Season 7 is coming back to HBO on Sunday, July 16, at 9/8c. We couldn't be more excited or terrified. Details on the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones have been heavily guarded ever since the first trailer. However, more and more spoilers are leaking as July 16 draws nearer and fans become more anxious. So, here's everything we know about Game of Thrones Season 7 so far!
Will There Be A Battle Of Fire And Ice In Game Of Thrones Season 7?
While we are pretty sure that John Snow and Daenerys Targaryen will meet and have some kind of conflict (after all, the original book series is titled 'A Song of Ice and Fire'), we doubt that anyone in the right mind would give that away until the episode airs. Regardless, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, show creator David Benioff mentioned, "For a long time we’ve been talking about 'the wars to come.' That war is pretty much here."
Fellow show creator, D.B. Weiss added, "Things are moving faster because, in the world of these characters, the war that they’ve been waiting for is upon them, the conflicts that have been building the past six years are upon them and those facts give them a sense of urgency that makes them move faster."
These conflicts likely include Dany's venture to Westeros to claim the Iron Throne after spending six years trying to set sail, Cersei Lannister defending the Iron Throne after...well, let's just say a lot, and John Snow becoming King in the North while the White Walkers grow stronger just beyong the Wall.
There Will Be TWO Extraordinarily Long Episodes In Season 7
You might be a bit frustrated that Season 7 will have fewer episodes than usual, but you'll be getting two episodes that are basically the length of an old Disney movie.
The show creators told EW that there will be two episodes that are over the 60-minute mark, and Benioff mentioned that "One will be our longest episode ever...One of the things we're lucky about is we don't have the [pressure to be short]. We have one episode that’s coming in around 90 minutes and another that’s going to be our shortest episode at 50 minutes."
What Will Happen To Dany In Season 7?
It looks like things are about to get a bit chilly for Dany. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys, teased a filming location that might indicate where her character lands in Westeros. And potentially who she might meet as well!
Clarke said, "Spoiler alert – I normally don't spend very much time in Belfast, but this last season, I spent a little more time there. It's a really interesting season in terms of some loose ends that have been tied, some really satisfying plot points, some things where you're like, 'Oh, my God. I forgot about that!' Rumors are going to be confirmed or denied."
For those of you that don't know, Belfast has previously been used to shoot Game of Thrones more Northern locations. Clarke's comment definitely has us wondering if she really will meet Jon Snow in Season 7.
And if you're worried about Dany getting killed off anytime soon, Clarke had some conflicting words. She said, "I have no doubt there'll be prequels and sequels and who knows what else. But I am doing one more season. And then that'll be it."
The Final Six Episodes Of Game Of Thrones Are Already Outlined
We're all debating how Game of Thrones will end and most importantly, who will finally win the Iron Throne. But, it definitely looks like Benioff and Weiss already know the answer to these questions! In an interview with Time, we learn that Game of Thrones only has six episodes to its final season and they have already been outlined.
Weiss said, "We know what happens in each scene."
We also know that the show conclusion may or may not be exactly what George R.R. Martin, the Game of Thrones book author, had originally envisioned.
"Certain things that we learned from George way back then are going to happen on the show, but certain things won’t," Benioff said. "And there’s certain things where George didn’t know what was going to happen, so we’re going to find them out for the first time, too.”
Are you excited for the end of Game of Thrones? Who do you want to win?
