We’ve finally been given an update on Game of Thrones Season 7.

Game of Thrones fans, rejoice! HBO has finally revealed the premier date for Game of Thrones Season 7.

And you know what that means: We can get together with our buddies and throw Game of the Thrones parties where we can dress up as our favourite Targaryen queen (I know it makes me look fabulous!)! It’s official: We can start counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until the premiere!

Factoring in the time difference in Australia, we’ll be watching the premiere on Monday July 17 as early as 1:30pm. For those thinking ‘What the fuck? Hasn’t it already been a year? How long do I have to wait for this shit?’ – don’t stress too much. They’ve simply had to delay things to ensure they had the right sort of weather for filming.

That’s because, instead of just saying that ‘Winter is Coming’ every five minutes, it may actually arrive this season as Game of Thrones approaches its endgame. This should nicely coincide with the fact that it will actually be the middle of winter in Australia when the new season begins.

It isn’t all reason for celebration. Arriving at Game of Thrones Season 7 means we’re nearing the end of the series.

At this point, Game of Throne fans should be used to waiting. The first six season have been teasing us with things that are about to happen but continually get delayed. With only 14 episodes to go, surely that trend is over and we’re about to get big payoffs. Its time for Daenerys and her armies finally arriving in Westeros and long-gone Starks like Arya and Bran finally having some relevance to the main storyline.

Hold on a second, did I just say 14 episodes to go?! Oh yes I did, and that means that after all that extra waiting, we’ll only be getting seven episodes this year.

Don’t worry too much, as the episodes should be a bit longer than usual (One hour in length, rather than the usual 45 minutes). This means that they will be focusing on the good stuff and not wasting our time with bullshit storylines (such as that whole rubbish thing in Dorne).

So write the date down in your calendar, take the day off work and prepare to have your heart broken all over again (please don’t kill any more Starks!). It still might feel like fucking ages but at least we now know the day!
