Bad news for Game Of Thrones fans.
According to reports, the hit HBO show might be returning later than its fans expect next year (2017).
As you already know, the show ended on a high note in season six and soon after, it was reiterated by Show Creators D.B Weiss and David Benioff that the remaining two seasons would have shorter episodes because there are now lesser stories to tell.
Now, according to E! News, during an interview with UFC Unfiltered, Game Of Thrones would be returning later than usual. GOT which usually premieres new season around April and May will not be premiering around that time next year.
Reason for this heartbreaking news? It is because Winter Is Here. While fans waited six seasons to see Winter come on the show, they are going to wait now that winter is here because according to Weiss and Beinoff, “sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes anymore”.
They added; “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”.
Game Of Thrones returns sometime in 2017 but it is safe to say we should not exactly hold our breaths.
