Game of thrones

The seventh season of the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones is set to premiere on HBO on July 16, 2017 till the 16th of August. This year’s season will have three fewer episodes as in comparison to previous editions which consisted of ten episodes. Like the previous season, it will largely consist of original content currently not found in George R. R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series, but also adapts material from the upcoming sixth and seventh novels The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.

HBO ordered the seventh season on April 21, 2016, three days before the premiere of the show’s sixth season, and began filming on August 31, 2016. The season was filmed primarily in Northern Ireland, Spain, and Iceland.

Game of Thrones features a large ensemble cast, including Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington. The season will introduce several new cast members, including Jim Broadbent and Tom Hopper.
