‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Premieres July 16

game of thrones season 7 july 16

Game of Thrones, America’s favorite ruthlessly mediocre, incessantly nihilistic, gorgeously produced show has a return date. The seventh season arrives July 16. I’ll catch-up by then, if only to complain about the show and the extravagant and unwarranted praise it receives.

The Verge:

During a bizarre Facebook Live event held this afternoon, HBO announced that the first half of Game of Thrones’ seventh season will premiere on July 16th. The summer debut comes later than previous premieres thanks the producers wanting to accommodate the shooting schedule.

Last season saw the series enter its final stretch, with Daenerys Targaryen on her way to Westeros, Cersei Lannister taking the Iron Throne, Arya Stark avenging her family, and Jon Snow being crowned King of the North. Now that winter and the White Walkers have come, the war for the future of the continent is about to begin.
