Game of Thrones Season 7 Delayed


The seventh season of the HBO series Game of Thrones has been delayed according to the showrunners. This news circulated a little over a week after the season finale aired. The production for Game of Thrones is certainly not an easy feat; the show is filmed in multiple countries and several various locations, followed by extraneous post-production work involving editing and CGI.


On the MMA podcast UFC UnfilteredGame of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said that there has been a delay in production due to weather complications:


“We don’t have an air date yet, but this year will probably be a bit later… we’re starting a bit later because, you know, the end of this season, winter is here, and that means sunny weather doesn’t serve our purposes anymore, so we pushed everything down the line to get some grim, grey weather, even in the sunnier places we shoot.”


Each season leading up to the present has been ten episodes long. Since there are only two seasons left, S7 will be seven episodes long and the final season will be a mere six. Even though there will be a delay, it shouldn’t be too drawn out. I’d assume that instead of having a March/April release date for S7, it will be more closer to May/June. Game of Thrones is a quality show that never delivers anything but excellence; if the crew needs to delay the show, it only means that S7 will be more polished and cultivated than a rushed release. I don’t know about you, but I’m a lot more concerned with the book being delayed than the show.


Winter is coming…soon…ish

Jon Snow
