At last! Usually around this time of year a new season of Game of Thrones is only a matter of weeks away, with season premieres over the years being in March or April. However, we have known for a long time that the seventh season was going to take a while longer due to production delays.

As of today though, we now know the official date for when season seven will arrive, and it is July 16th.

Yep, still over four months away but at least we have a day to be counting down to now.

The announcement was revealed by HBO using Facebook Live as they used blow torches on a television screen encased in ice that melted away to show the date. It was all very dramatic.

They also released a brand new teaser – and while it has no new footage – if this doesn’t get you excited for season 7, nothing will.
