Return date announced; What fewer episodes mean

"Instead of the show's traditional spring debut, we're moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule", Bloys added.

The hugely popular TV series Game of Thrones will be a little shorter than in previous seasons.

"The great thing about George is that he worked in television for more than 10 years", Weiss and Benioff said. On Monday, the cable network (via The Hollywood Reporter) announced that "Game of Thrones" season 7 will premiere in the summer of 2017. Panelists include: executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, director Michael Sapochnik and cast members (in alphabetical order) John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei), Isaac Hemptstead Wright (Bran Stark), Conleth Hill (Varys), Faye Marsay (The Waif), Kristian Nairn (Hodor), Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark).

In this image released by HBO, Emilia Clarke appears in a scene from "Game of Thrones". It's the first time that followers of both the show and the novel have no clue what's going to happen - including what was going to happen after Jon Snow's death - because season 5 marked the point where Martin left off in his last published novel, "A Dance With Dragons".

"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".

HBO has yet to confirm an exact release date for "Game of Thrones" season 7.

With only 7 episodes it also indicates that there will be much less fluff shoe-horned into the show. Within the entire six-season run of the show, there has been some memorable epic fight scenes, including those that were featured in the episodes "Blackwater" and "The Watchers on the Wall".

The producers are aiming to close "Game of Thrones" Season 7 at 73 hours.

Last week, Game Of Thrones received 23 Primetime Emmy® nominations, the most of any nominee for the third year in a row.
