The agonizing wait for next season of Game of Thrones begins.

It has just been one day since season six ended, and we are already having a hard time waiting for Game of Thrones season 7 to premiere. Well, now we have almost a year to figure out who will be in the next season of Game of Thrones.
Warning: This post might contain Game of Thrones spoilers regarding the next season and the characters in the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere.
All the Details You Should Know about “Game of Thrones” Season 7
Season 7 Will Premiere in April 2017
Game of Thrones has been following a certain pattern about releasing their new seasons. Season 1 was released on April 17, 2011. The release dates of seasons 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 were April 1, 2012; March 31, 2013; April 6, 2014; April 12, 2015, and April 24, 2016 respectively. Every year, the release dates of the seasons keep being pushed forward, so this year, expect the Game of Thrones season 7 to premiere somewhere between mid-April to late April 2017.
Unfortunately, this is one of the shows which takes a gap of 10 months to release its next season, but it’s so worth it. For those who are still lagging behind, the wait for you won’t be that long, but for others who are already done watching all the seasons, all we have to say to you is hold on! Although the Game of Thrones season 7 release date is not yet decided, it is assumed to be released somewhere in April.
Season 7 and 8 Final Seasons?
There are enough speculations on the Internet that season 7 and 8 might be the final seasons of the show. In an interview, executive producers of the show, D.B.Weiss and David Benioff, said that they are mostly “heading into the final lap.” Well, we hope there are many more seasons left to come, we don’t mind the waiting!
Again, another speculation is that season 7 might be the shortest season of the whole series. Normally, each season of Game of Thrones has 10 episodes, but season 7 might just have seven episodes followed by six episodes in season 8.
No Impact on the Show due to Brexit
The ongoing Brexit issue won’t create any hindrance for production and for releasing in the U.K. So, fans don’t really have to worry about it because although Britain left the E.U., it won’t have any impact on the filming of the show.
The trailer of the next season of Game of Thrones is still not yet released and mostly the airing time will stay the same, but we need to wait for 2017 for these things to get confirmed. Now all we can do is wait for Game of Thrones season 7 to premiere soon, or at least the trailer to be released soon, so that fans can create their own predictions and theory about the next season.
