HBO Announces ‘Game of Thrones’ Pushed Back for Shorter Summer Return


Game of Thrones Season 7 is coming, but not the way many of us expected.

Usually Game of Thrones premieres every spring (April), but for the next season it will premiere in Summer 2017.

Even stranger, it will only have seven episodes, instead of the usual ten. Very interesting!

HBO adds that the season will be shot in Northern Ireland, Spain and Iceland. The last time the series shot in Iceland significantly was when John Snow was North of The Wall with the Wildlings.

What do you think of these changes?
