It has been half a year since HBO's #GameOfThrones concluded its sixth season, and we've been eagerly awaiting the seventh season of the fantasy drama ever since. There's no denying that the premium cable series is one of the most compelling #TV shows ever written, and we're on the edge of our seat after what happened in the last season.
HBO has been very careful not to give anything away — we know very little about the season. However, HBO has not only released the first official Season 7 poster earlier this week, but we now officially have a premiere date.

Season 7 Premiere Date Revealed
The official Game Of Thrones Facebook page posted a live video that focused on a large block of ice; the caption encouraged viewers to melt the ice by typing "Fire" in the comment section. The viewers even received a message of support from cast members Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Lena Headey and Gwendoline Christie.
Much like on the poster, #FireAndIce collided as the ice was blasted with fire, eventually revealing the date. Game Of Thrones Season 7 will premiere on July 16, 2017.
As part of the Facebook Live reveal, HBO also released this Game of Thrones Season 7 video teaser:
From the moment Season 6 concluded, we've been counting down the days until Season 7. However, after it was announced that the next season was going to be delayed due to production reasons, I think every Thrones fan was a little upset. The sixth season was without a doubt the strongest that the show has delivered thus far, and the final two episodes have gone down in episodic television history.
There's almost no more waiting, fellow Throners. This summer, you can pledge your allegiance to the wall and take the black once more.
Are you excited for 'Game Of Thrones' Season 7?
