Whollup Yall! Don’t shoot the messenger, Game of Thrones fans, but there’s been some bad news.
Not only will season seven of the HBO hit be shorter than usual, but co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have revealed that it’s going to take a bit longer for the season to make its way to our TVs, too.
In an interview on the UFC Unfiltered podcast, they explained that the major development in the final episode of season six (think about Sansa’s grim weather forecast) will necessitate a delay in production on the shortened season.
‘We don’t have an air date yet,’ Benioff and Weiss said. ‘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.’
Traditionally, for each of its prior six seasons, GOT has premiered anywhere between late March and late April, but it’s clear that won’t be happening.
We just hope you have a heart to bear the delay, however we wish you the very best of luck while you wait.
