'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Will Be Delayed For The Worst Reason

By

I really thought this short week of work was going to be easier than most, but after learning season seven of "Game of Thrones" will be delayed, well, I'm just not so sure anymore.

According to reports, the rest of your summer is now ruined due to the fact "GoT" has to delay the filming of season seven as a result of... wait for it... the WEATHER.

Though the HBO hit has traditionally debuted each new season in April, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have reportedly revealed we'll have to wait for a later start date in 2017.

Speaking on the "UFC Unfiltered" podcast, the minds behind the television adaptation of George RR Martin's novels said,

We don't have an air date yet, but this year will probably be a little bit later.

They continued,

We're starting a bit later because at the end of this season, 'Winter is here' -- and that means that sunny weather doesn't really serve our purposes any more. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.

Ned Stark was right all along, and now Westeros' winter has ruined our summer. I can't even.
