It’s not too early to get excited about Game of Thrones Season 7 and how much longer the fantasy epic can run. Here is the future of HBO’s fantasy hit.
Game of Thrones Season 7 – When’s it on?
Game of Thrones has made a habit of debuting in early April. But this time, it’ll launch a little later – in the summer.
“We’re starting the seventh season a bit later because at the end of it, ‘winter is here’ – that means the sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes anymore,” the showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirmed.
How long Game of Thrones Season 7 will run?
HBO declined to reveal how many episodes would make up the next run. But, David and Dan are feeling there’s probably two more years to go, “That’s what we’re looking at right now,” they said in January.
In June, Benioff and Weiss confirmed that the show would wrap up with two shorter seasons.
From pretty close to the beginning, they talked about doing GOT in 70-75 hours, and that’s what it ends up with. Call it 73 for now. Given the 60 hours already covered, it’s been confirmed that we’ll be getting seventh season in 2017, which confirms that the eighth and final run will be divided into just 6 installments.
What will happen in the final run?
Meantime, Daenerys finally set sail for Westeros. The combined forces of the Unsullied, the Dothraki and the Ironborn, with Varys, Missandei, Tyrion, Olenna Tyrell, the women of Dorne and her dragons all at her side.
On the other side, we just saw Jon Snow appointed the King in the North, while his younger brother Bran learned that Snow was not Ned Stark’s bastard at all, but the offspring of Lyanna Stark and some other man – possibly Daenerys’s deceased older brother Rhaegar Targaryen. Jon Snow could really be the prince that was promised!
Both of them will be marching towards a confrontation with Cersei, who’s just seized the Iron Throne following the death of her son Tommen.
There is another theory; Dany might have to face off against Jon too, unless, she makes him her husband, really interesting!
Don’t get excited about my next words, Lady Stoneheart (Catelyn Stark) to make an appearance anytime soon. Though she was resurrected in Martin’s novels, we don’t know yet when she will make an appearance on the TV.
“We know what is coming, and we’re running towards it,” Benioff and Weiss just said.
