Game of Thrones Season 7 will debut next Summer and have fewer episodes



Game of Thrones will begin shooting its next season later this summer, it was announced today by Casey Bloys, President, HBO programming. Production of HBO‘s seven-episode Season 7 will be based in Northern Ireland, while additional scenes will be filmed in Spain and Iceland, with a debut slated for summer 2017 on HBO.

This means it will not be eligible for any of the 2017 Emmy Awards. Last week, the show received 23 Primetime Emmy nominations, the most of any nominee for the third year in a row.

There will also only be seven episodes.

“Now that winter has arrived on Game Of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing,” said Casey Bloys. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”

Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), Jeremy Podeswa (“Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”), Mark Mylod (“High Sparrow”), and Matt Shakman (Fargo Season 1) will be directing Season 7’s episodes.

The executive producers of Game of Thrones Season 7 are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; and producers are Chris Newman, Greg Spence and Lisa McAtackney.
