We Finally Know The Start Date For 'Game Of Thrones' Season 7

by Adam Silvers

Winter is finally here, which means you can stop guessing when "Game of Thrones" season seven will actually start this summer.

That's right, kids!

Thursday, via a Facebook Live on the official "Game of Thrones" FB page, HBO announced the exact start date for the seventh season of "Game of Thrones."

Yes, we now know the seventh season of "GoT" will premiere July 16 at 9 pm EST on HBO.

It's weird, I have a variety of mixed emotions right now.

On the one hand, I'm definitely feeling some closure in knowing when exactly the penultimate season of "Game of Thrones" will premiere, but on the other hand, I'm thinking about how we're still four months away from watching the damn thing.

Wednesday, HBO released the first poster to promo the seventh season of the HBO hit, and it immediately caused a spark across Twitter.

On the surface, there isn't much to go on, save the obvious winter is finally here.

See the ice? Yeah, OK.

However, if you take a closer look at the bottom of the poster, you'll spot flames intertwined with the ice, which I'm taking as foreshadowing for the integral role Daenerys Targaryen, fire, and Jon Snow, ice, will play in each other's lives/fates.

Based on everything we learned during season six of "Game of Thrones," you have to know in your heart of hearts Jon and Dany will meet and have a massive impact on what happens in Westeros.

We've been building up to this point, haven't we? Are we all watching the same show?


If you need more proof, look no further than this alleged leaked photo of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen from the set of filming for season seven of "Game of Thrones."


Yeah, it's all becoming clearer, isn't it?

Looks like Ser Davos wasn't lying when he said season seven would air in July.

I shouldn't have to say this, but just as a reminder, don't forget to tune into HBO at 9 pm EST on July 16 to catch the premiere of "Game of Thrones" season seven.
