HBO has tried to keep “Game of Thrones” details under wraps for Season 7 just like every season. But Liam Cunningham’s Davos Seaworth used to be a smuggler, and today he just smuggled out some information which you are waiting for.
Ladies, gentlemen, wildlings and crows: Winter is coming in July.
In an interview with the Independent, Cunningham talked about the Season 7 premiere date:
I’ve been disappointing various people around the world because it was meant to come out in April. It’s July now, I think. There’s going to be a launch and something special happening this year for the premiere. The bad news is, there will only be seven episodes and the [filming for the] final season starts again as far as I know in September.
Cunningham also discusses something special happening for the premier, Deadline reports that “Game of Thrones” is teaming up with Major League Baseball for Season 7.
According to Deadline, the partnership works because “Game of Thrones” will come out during the middle of the baseball season, and the show appeals to millennials, which is a group MLB wants to reach.
